Pollock Publishes Book

Norman Pollock, an emeritus faculty member of the MSU History Department, as recently published Eichman on the Potomac: The Psychopathology of Drone Warfare. A searing indictment of the Barack Obama administration and the unchecked growth of executive power, Eichmann on the Potomac is a political and psychological profile of the contemporary imperial mindset. Norman Pollack’s book places Obama’s drone warfare program and targeted assassination plan into historical and legal context, showing how the routinization of assassination, aerial surveillance, and undeclared warfare shreds the constitutional limitations on unrestrained executive power.
