The Jonathan Schell Reader: On the United States at War, the Long Crisis of the American Republic, and the Fate of the Earth
Paperback - English

Reporting on Vietnam for "The New Yorker," Schell wrote a series of seminal articles that became "The Village of Ben Suc" (1967), a searing account that predicted the failure of Pentagon politics. This volume contains a landmark collection that spans the career of one of the leading thinkers and authors of modern times. ...At times of global crisis, Jonathan Schell's writings have always presented nuanced and influential alternatives to conventional thinking. The moral clarity of his reportage first entered the public consciousness with his dispatches for The New Yorker on Vietnam. These seminal articles became The Village of Ben Suc (1967), a searing account that predicted the failure of Pentagon politics. Over the subsequent decades, Schell's varied and consistently prescient articles have articulated the now commonly held notion that image has replaced substance in politics; provided (in Fate of the Earth) an apocalyptic vision of nuclear war that revitalized the disarmament movement; and more recently, charted the rise of the other superpower -- the international peace movement that transcends country, class, and religion. As America finds itself at a crucial juncture both domestically and internationally, The Jonathan Schell Reader is vital reading for those who wish to better understand the history they have come from and the direction they should be heading toward. This book provides a landmark collection that spans the career of one of the leading thinkers and authors of our time
