Only one living writer of history has gained and held anything like such a general readership. Drawing on a comprehensive array of examples, from Montezuma's senseless surrender of his empire in 1520 to Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, Tuchman defines folly as the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to the their own interests, despite th availability of feasible alternatives. Tuchman sweeps us through thirty centuries, from the fall of Troy to the war in Vietnam. Includes an Index.
