There’s Another Ex-President Who Needs to Be Arrested!

Lewis Lapham discusses George W. Bush, the Iraq War, and democracy

A little after the 20th anniversary of the Iraq War, Lewis Lapham discusses three essays he wrote during the George W. Bush era: “The American Rome” (August 2001), “Cause for Dissent” (April 2003), and “Going by the Book” (November 2006). With fine prose and razor-edged contempt for war, lies, and complacent members of the commentariat, each article captures a distinctive historical moment.
