AN AUTUMN OF WAR: What America Learned from September 11 and the War on Terrorism

Victor Davis Hanson, Author . Anchor $12 (240p) ISBN 978-1-4000-3113-9

"Why do they hate us?" is the wrong question to ask after September 11, writes Hanson; war and tragedy are to be expected, as the ancients knew. Hanson's classicism informs this collection of essays that appeared mostly on National Review Online, presented here chronologically, from September (when, he argues, "we had no choice but to counterattack long and hard") through December 2001, when he considers the implications of that counterattack. Liberals beware: Hanson has no patience for these who believe the condition of the world can be ameliorated. (On sale Aug. 13)
