Description: Identifying the historical antecedents of President George W. Bush's imperial ambitions and the sources of the reactionary thought and politics that underlie them, Paul A. Bove shows how neoconservatism represents a singular danger to democracy. At the same time, he criticizes the equally disheartening inability of the academic left to oppose neoconservatives and its tendency to mirror their views instead. Divorced from historical knowledge and intellectual rigor, the neocon voices embody the right-wing consequences of cultural and historical amnesia that profits from ignorance and conformity. Exposing the threats to national survival inherent in the combination of right-wing politics and academic tribalism, Bove emphasizes the need to reconnect with the powers of imagination and the complexity of human historical experience. With urgency and passion, Bove shows how the neocons have succeeded in cowing or coopting academic intellectuals and how language has been used and abused for the maintenance and extension of an undemocratic regime.
