We have a brand new copy of Rachel Maddow’s book, “Drift, The Unmooring of American Military Power” and we want to give it to you. All you have to do is click here and sign up for our RSS feed via email. We will select someone from the feed on Monday morning using RandomPicker.com
The book, which has received great reviews, examines how being at war has become the new normal for the United States. It looks at the shifts that have happened since the 1970s and have made making war easier than it used to be. Maddow identifies theses changes as secrecy, the presidency taking on new power, Congress ceding power to the president and the changing size and shapes of the military. “Drift” is designed to spark a new debate about “how, when, and where to apply America’s strength and power–and who gets to make those decisions.”
Enjoy the weekend.
