Solvency: The Price of Survival
Solvency: The Price of Survival
By James Chace
Random House, 1981, 115 pp

A wise and prophetic indictment of American leadership and society since the 1960s for squandering economic and military resources, failing to prevent inflation, and misperceiving vital interests. Brief autobiographical asides (the author's adult years began in the 1950s when American power was at its peak) add poignancy.
