An "absorbing and provocative" ( "New York Times" ) autopsy of a once-vital all-American myth: the cherished belief that elimination of a less-than human enemy was necessary to achieve our national destiny."An extraordinarily original work that places postwar American history in an entirely new perspective. Anyone who wishes to introduce students to post-1945 American culture should assign this wonderful book."--John Dower, MIT, author of "War Without Mercy" "Absorbing and provocative." "--New York Times" "Full of brilliancies, this "tour de force" is one of those rare books that can change the way we see."--Todd Gitlin, author of "The Sixties" "A perfect book to use in twentieth-century history courses."--Elaine Tyler May, author of "Homeward Bound"
