Host Per Fagereng interviews professor and retired Army colonel Andrew Bacevich about his new book Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War. Bacevich presents the origins of the unchanging American military policy which was forged at a moment when American power was at its height. He also exposes the preconceptions, biases, and habits that underlie our pervasive faith in military might.
Andrew Bacevich, professor of history and international relations at Boston University, retired from the U.S. Army with the rank of colonel. He is the author of The Limits of Power and The New American Militarism. His writing has appeared in "Foreign Affairs," "The Atlantic Monthly," "The Nation," "The New York TImes," "The Washington Post," and "The Wall Street Journal."

Bacevich spent twenty-three years serving in the US Army. His son Andrew J. Bacevich, Jr., was killed in action in Iraq in 2007 by an improvised explosive device.
