April Book Club Choice

The next months book choice is The March of Folly by Barbara W. Tuchman

The March of Folly

Twice a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, author Barbara Tuchman tackles the presence of folly in governments through the ages. Defining folly as the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to their own interersts, despite the availability of feasible alternatives, Tuchman details four decisive turning points in history that illustrate the very heights of folly in government: the Trojan War, the breakup of the Holy See provoked by the Renaissance Popes, the loss of the American colonies by Britain's George III, and the United States' persistent folly in Vietnam. THE MARCH OF FOLLY brings the people, places, and events of history magnificently alive for today's reader.

This looks like an exciting and informative read and i look forward to hearing your thoughts and comments
