Tirman covers everything from politics to health issues to religion to economics to pop culture. It may, however, serve best as an introduction to America's path to its problems on the global stage. With a foreword by Howard Zinn whose People's History of the United States is almost indispensable in understanding that path , Tirman easily blends history with current events in assessing America's impact on the world.
The problem with the book is perhaps inherent.
A great great deal of overlap and repetition exists among the Ways. For example, the military-industrial complex predicted by President Eisenhower, America's prior interventions in other countries, support of foreign dictators and the desire that economic policy in developing nations follow our model are just a few of the elements appearing in many of the Ways. As would be expected, many of the issues arise from political and foreign policy. As for the former, Tirman is highly critical of Republicans, particularly the Reagan Administration and what he terms "the failed presidency of George W.
Too often, Tirman believes, it produces too narrow a focus and gives rise to levels of hypocrisy. Thus, our "Puritanical Ethic" leads Tirman to note "how much more energy is put into blocking the sight of a breast on television than drawing attention to poverty, environmental destruction, war, or racism. Still, Tirman says he is attempting to be "rigorously nonpartisan. Yet there is no doubt his views find their source in traditional liberal thought. This may be seen best in his evaluation of Bill Clinton. He then condemns Clinton and the Democrats for moving toward the center or even right of center and squandering eight years in the White House.
As the executive director of the MIT Center for International Studies , Tirman is particularly qualified to evaluate the impact of America's policies and actions in foreign relations.
