"Composed during the postwar years when America came of age as a world power, The Irony of American History is as relevant as ever today. Niebuhr's masterpiece on the incongruity between personal ideals and political reality is both an indictment of American moral complacency and a warning against the arrogance of virtue. Impassioned and eloquent, his wisdom encourages us to rethink our assumptions about right and wrong, war and peace."--Book cover.
