Roots of War Paperback – March 30, 1973. This book is an excellent source of facts about warmongering America. Nevertheless, Barnet never gets to the true roots of the cause of war. Despite the fact that almost in every single page he mentions the warmongering activities of members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the CFR is mentioned just two or three times in the whole book and does not appear in the Index. Moreover, in the final chapters he unveils his Marxist beliefs and frequently mentions Marx and Lenin.

Richard Barnet wrote Roots of War (1972), Global Reach: The Power of the Multinational Corporations (1974), one of the first books critical of the effects of what would come to be known as globalization, The Giants (1977), on Soviet-U. an analysis of some powerful corporations. Barnet was strongly religious, which influenced his views about war, peace and civil rights. He was a talented violinist, and taught music to children from poor neighborhoods toward the end his life. He and his wife, Ann, had two daughters and one son, as well as a foster son.

However, after the humiliating memories of Vietnam were washed away in the smoke and blood of the Gulf War and overtly bellicose behavior returned to US foreign policy the questions once again are worthy of answers. I'd recommend this book to anyone who's confused about the roots of American policy, how we got here, and who's behind the wheel of.

Richard Barnet argues in this provocative and disturbing study of the Thirty Years’ War waged in the name of peace that instead of trying to make the world safe for America we should be looking for a way to make America safe for the world. But the special valueof his book lies in his examination of the domestic political, economic,and social forces that determine thatamorphous thing we call the national interest. For the elite who haveevolved our foreign policy, that national interest demands war, the threat of war and the preparation forwar.

Barnet, a critic of the war in Vietnam, wrote two books on disarmament, served in the Department of State under JFK and founded the Institute for Foreign Policy Studies. He is the "thorn in the flesh" that keeps democracy on its toes. After reading Herbert Feisâ€TM From Trust to Terror and Richard J. Barnetâ€TMs Roots of War, one is left with the impression that these two books are representative not only of two different historical schools, that of traditionalism and revisionism respectively, but even more of two separate generations.

This book is an excellent source of facts about warmongering America. Nevertheless, Barnet never gets to the true roots of the cause of war. Despite the fact that almost in every single page he mentions the warmongering activities of members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the CFR is mentioned just two or three times in the whole book and does not appear in the Index.
Moreover, in the final chapters he unveils his Marxist beliefs and frequently mentions Marx and Lenin. Apparently he ignores that Marxism is a creation of Wall Street bankers — take a look at Clinton Roosevelt's book.

This book is exceedingly informative in its discussions of the making of foreign policies by the government bureaucracies,, american multinational corporations, and political interests that still abound. The book was published in 1972 but the late-author's insights remain as valid in today's norm.

The Men and Institutions Behind US Foreign Policy (subtitle)
This book was published during the final stages of the Vietnam debacle at the high-water-mark of intense scholarly scrutiny of US foreign policy. The series of post-WWII undeclared wars had culminated in the tar-baby of SE Asia, the body-bags were arriving home by boatloads, thousands of US prisoners were rotting in the tiger-cages of North Vietnam and finally a significant segment of the US public was demanding to know why.
Barnet explores the answers in a good, though fairly one-sided exploration of the factors that led us where we were. In many instances the facts he presents continue to apply in the post-Vietnam Era, though the comparative silence of the guns between Vietnam and the Gulf War would have argued otherwise during those years.
However, after the humiliating memories of Vietnam were washed away in the smoke and blood of the Gulf War and overtly bellicose behavior returned to US foreign policy the questions once again are worthy of answers.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who's confused about the roots of American policy, how we got here, and who's behind the wheel of the decisions of our government about foreign policy.
