The Turkey and the Eagle: Caleb Stewart Rossiter Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
In 1784 Benjamin Franklin advocated choosing the industrious, home-loving wild turkey rather than the thieving, wide-ranging bald eagle as the symbol of the United States. Franklin lost that debate, and since then advocates of cooperation as America's global role have been similarly losing their struggle with advocates of U.S. domination. The author recounts that struggle, with particular emphasis on the past 30 years, which he spent working in and around Congress with groups opposed to U.S. support for repressive yet "friendly" regimes. He then proposes electoral reforms and a revolution in Americans' attitudes that would place our values rather than corporate and strategic interests at the core of our global purpose.
