The Age of Fallibility: Consequences of the War on Terror by George Soros was published June 12, 2006, by Public Affairs (ISBN 1586483595). Soros "heads Soros Fund Management and is the founder of a global network of foundations dedicated to supporting open societies." [1]


"The legendary financier-and founder of the Open Society Institute offers crucial insight into the real meaning of freedom, and how societies can best promote it.

"After reflecting on his support of a losing Democrat for president, George Soros steps back to revisit his views on why George Bush's policies around the world fall short in the arenas most important to Soros: democracy, human rights and open society. As a survivor of the Holocaust and a life-long proponent of free expression, Soros understands the meaning of freedom. And yet his differences with George Bush, another proponent of freedom, are profound.

"In this powerful essay Soros spells out his views and how they differ from the president's. He reflects on why the Democrats may have lost the high ground on these values issues and how they might reclaim it. As he has in his recent books, On Globalization and The Bubble of American Supremacy, Soros uses facts, anecdotes, personal experience and philosophy to illuminate a major topic in a way that both enlightens and inspires."
