Heads in the Sand How the Republicans Screw Up Foreign Policy and Foreign Policy Screws Up the Democrats Author:Matthew Yglesias Praise for Heads In the Sand "A very serious, thoughtful argument that has never been made in such detail or with such care." — ?Ezra Klein, staff writer at The American Prospect "Matt Yglesias is one of the smartest voices in the blogosphere. He knows a lot about politics, a lot about foreign policy, and, crucially, is unusually shrewd i... more »n understanding how they interact. Here's hoping that his new book will introduce him to an even wider audience. Once you discover him, you'll be hooked."
?E. J. Dionne, author of Souled Out: Reclaiming Faith and Politics After the Religious Right and Why Americans Hate Politics "Matthew Yglesias is one of a handful of bloggers that I make a point of reading every day. Heads in the Sandis a smart, vital book that urges Democrats to stop evading the foreign-policy debate and to embrace the old principles of international liberalism?to be right and also to win."
?Fred Kaplan, author of Daydream Believers: How a Few Grand Ideas Wrecked American Power "Reading foreign policy tomes is seldom included among life's pleasures, but Yglesias has concocted a startling exception. Heads in the Sand is not just a razor-sharp analysis cum narrative of the politics of national security in general and the Iraq war in particular, it's also an enthralling and often very funny piece of writing. Though he administers strong antidotes to the haplessness of his fellow Democrats and liberals, there's more than a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down."
