The March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam: From Tro&hellip von Barbara W. Tuchman
5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant, 10. November 1999
The book is a penetrating analysis of the collective madness that overtakes governments, causing them to act consistently, wittingly and willingly in a manner inimical to their own interests. This process is illustrated by a collection of essays on the wooden horse, the Renaissance Popes, The British loss of America and the Vietnam War. An excellent read and a book that I, as a consultant, have given away a number of times to clients who were similarly hell-bent on self-destruction - with excellent results.
