In Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power, the host of the Emmy Award-winning “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC, argues that we’ve drifted away from America’s original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails.

Maddow takes us from the Vietnam War to today’s war in Afghanistan, along the way exploring Reagan’s presidency, the rise of executive authority, the outsourcing of our war-making capabilities to private companies, and the plummeting percentage of American families whose children fight our constant wars for us. Ultimately, she shows just how much we stand to lose by allowing the priorities of the national security state to overpower political discourse. Book signing to follow.
