The British Moment and What's Wrong with Liberal Interventionism reviewed in the FT by Samuel Brittan

Posted by Michael Mosbacher

The Social Affairs Unit's two recent publications offering contrasting perspectives on Britain's correct foreign policy - The British Moment: The Case for Democratic Geopolitics in the Twenty-first Century, which is the manifesto of The Henry Jackson Society, and What's Wrong with Liberal Interventionism: The Dangers and Delusions of the Interventionist Doctrine by Roger Howard - were both reviewed in the Financial Times by Sir Samuel Brittan on Monday 14th August: Two views of foreign policy morality.

The Social Affairs Unit titles Neoconservatism: Why We Need It by Douglas Murray and Anti-Totalitarianism: The Left-Wing Case for a Neoconservative Foreign Policy by Oliver Kamm have been reviewed by the Claremont Institute: Two Cheers for Neoconservatism. (Originally published by the Social Affairs Unit in November 2005, Encounter Books have just brought out a US edition of Douglas Murray's book - the review discusses this US edition of the Murray book. A chapter on "Neoconservatism for Britain" has been replaced with a chapter on "Neoconservatism for America".)

Finally, those looking for some amusement should turn to Lyndon LaRouche's Executive Intelligence Review. The launch of The British Moment has got them all excited and - as they are fond of doing - they have "uncovered" a conspiracy. To read 5,000 words of their "analysis", see: Neo-Cons Move to the United Kingdom - The Henry Jackson Society: Would-Be Fascist World Rule.
