Drawing on the author’s experiences growing up in wartime Japan and his forty years covering the United States, Democracy with a Gun traces America’s current position as the world’s sole superpower. Discussions of influential American leaders, the Second Amendment, the Civil War, the dropping of the atomic bomb, the wars in Vietnam and Iraq, and aggressive foreign policies suggest a nation willing to act unilaterally to secure and impose its lofty goals of peace and freedom. This timely and important work offers a perspective from abroad rarely provided by the usual media pundits.
