America in Conflict: The Deepening Values Divide

Front Cover
Hamilton Books, 2007 - Political Science - 243 pages
0 Reviews
This book analyzes the values divide in modern America by examining the different values at stake in major policy areas, such as the war in Iraq where traditional reasons for going to war have been usurped by the Bush doctrine of preemption. The involvement of the religious right in politics also involves value issues including the separation of church and state. Other values concerned in the divide, such as a balance between freedom and security in our response to terrorism on American soil, fairness and equity in our taxation policies, and the values at stake in solving our environmental problems are explored in depth. The final section has a chapter devoted to the revitalization of democracy in America, and a concluding chapter discussing what the second term of the Bush administration means to America.
