This is a paperbound reprint of a 2006 book. Capitulating to the demands of dictatorships inevitably results in worse conflicts. Defense analyst Record (U.S. Air Force's Air War College) argues that this "lesson" learned from the Anglo-French appeasement of Nazi Germany has misguided presidential decisions through the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq. He treats as more relevant lessons the consequences of foreign policy miscalculations and the constraints of public opinion in a democracy. The book includes a chronology. The author served on the staff of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Distributed by Books International. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
