About this title


This collection of eleven of Newton Garver's Buffalo Report essays on war, power, ethics, truth and justice in the US during the Bush years, and the recent struggle for human rights and political decency in Bolivia, is the best kind of moral and political journalism. Limits to Power also includes an Invocation that puts new meaning into "God bless America," a phrase that has been pounded into triteness by cynical politicians, and an Epilogue, "Heraclitus's Reply," in which nearly everything is revealed.

About the Author:

Newton Garver is a Quaker and philosopher. He has been connected with the Philosophy Department at the University at Buffalo since 1961, rising to the rank of SUNY Distin-guished Service Professor. Since his retirement from full-time teaching in 1995, he has continued offering seminars and public lectures, often on Wittgenstein and most recently on "Politics and its Virtues." His book, Wittgenstein and Approaches to Clarity, was published by Humanity Books in December 2005. Becoming acquainted with Quakers as an undergraduate, he refused to register for the 1948 draft and spent the better part of a year in prison. In recent decades his Quaker work has included facilitating Alternatives of Violence Project (AVP) workshops in Wende Correctional Facility, and founding the Bolivian Quaker Education Fund to strengthen relations between Bolivian Quakers (all 30,000 of whom are Amerindians, mostly Aymara) and their co-religionists in the north.
