Overview

My ne hotim zanovo pereskazyvat' vsyu istoriyu nashej strany — eto poprostu nevozmozhno. My stremimsya prolit' svet na to, chto my schitaem predatel'stvom idej, legshih v osnovu ee istoricheskoj missii, — poskol'ku nam kazhetsya, chto vse eshche est' nadezhda ispravit' eti oshibki do togo, kak XXI vek okonchatel'no vstupit v svoi prava. Nas gluboko bespokoit kurs, vzyatyj SSHA v poslednee vremya. Pochemu nasha strana razmeshchaet vo vsekh ugolkah zemnogo shara svoi voennye bazy, obshchee kolichestvo kotoryh, po nekotorym podschetam, perevalilo za tysyachu? Pochemu SSHA tratyat na svoi vooruzhennye sily bol'she deneg, chem vse ostal'nye strany, vmeste vzyatye? Pochemu nashe gosudarstvo po-prezhnemu soderzhit ogromnyj arsenal yadernogo oruzhiya, bol'shaya chast' kotorogo nahoditsya v postoyannoj boevoj gotovnosti, hotya, po suti, ni odna strana segodnya ne predstavlyaet dlya nas neposredstvennoj ugrozy? Pochemu nichtozhnomu men'shinstvu sostoyatel'nyh amerikancev pozvoleno okazyvat' takoe moshchnoe vliyanie na vnutrennyuyu i vneshnyuyu politiku SSHA i SMI, v to vremya kak shirokie narodnye massy stradayut ot snizheniya urovnya zhizni, a ih golos v politike slyshen vse slabee? Pochemu amerikancy vynuzhdeny mirit'sya s postoyannym nadzorom, vmeshatel'stvom gosudarstva v ih lichnye dela, popraniem grazhdanskih svobod i utratoj prava na chastnuyu zhizn'? Eto poverglo by v uzhas otcov-osnovatelej i prezhnie pokoleniya amerikancev. Pochemu v nashej strane imenno te, kem dvizhet zhadnost' i uzkolobyj egoizm, pravyat temi, kto ratuet za takie obshchestvennye cennosti, kak dobrota, shchedrost', sochuvstvie k okruzhayushchim, obshchnost' interesov i vernost' obshchenarodnym idealam? I eto lish' malaya tolika tekh voprosov, kotorye my zadadim na stranicah etoj knigi. I hotya my ne nadeemsya, chto sumeem najti otvety na vse iz nih, my vse zhe postaraemsya predstavit' istoricheskie fakty tak, chtoby chitateli smogli samostoyatel'no uglubit'sya v izuchenie zainteresovavshih ih voprosov.
