Searching examination of the influence of the pro-war Left on US foreign policy.
From the Publisher:

A war that has killed over a million Iraqis was a 'humanitarian intervention', the US army is a force for liberation, and the main threat to world peace is posed by Islam.

Those are the arguments of a host of liberal commentators, ranging from Christopher Hitchens to Kanan Makiya, Michael Ignatieff, Paul Berman, and Bernard-Henri Levy. In this criticall intervention, Richard Seymour unearts the history of liberal justifications for empire, showing how savage policies of conquest--including genocide and slavery--have been retailed as charitable missions.

From the Cold War to the War on Terror, Seymour argues that the colonial tropes of 'civilization' and 'progress' still shape liberal pro-war discourse, and still conceal the same bloody realities.
