Benjamin R. Barber lambasts the Bush administration's attempt to fight fear with fear in the age of terrorism and argues against the tendency to confuse the spread of "McWorld" - the seductive blend of free-market ideology and American brands - with the spread of democracy. Barber examines the controversial issues that underlie the Cold War theory of containment and deterrence, and the dilemmas faced by America today. He rails against unilateralism, nuclear deterrence and reliance on military solutions, advocating instead an America that promotes co-operation, multilateralism, international law and pooled sovereignty.
