Sappho's Book Club: February

February's Featured Book:
"Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower" By, William Blum
" The American Empire: To the American mind, these words sound like an oxymoron. Suggesting to Americans that their country has a compelling lust for political, economic, and military hegemony over the rest of the world, divorced from any moral considerations is akin to telling them of one's UFO abduction-except that they're more likely to believe the abduction story. William Blum has compiled evidence that will make believers of such skeptics. In 'Rogue State', he shows that "close encounters" between the United States and alien nations have demonstrably been of the cruelest kind--What has the U.S. done to the world that creates American-hating terrorists?"
This is the first book to be selected in' Sappho's Book Club'. At the end of February (date T.B.A.), all who read it can/will comment on it & engage in discussion. If you have a suggestion for a book to be featured, let me know. We can even vote on the next book, if wanted.
