Dorothy Buckton James

  • [In the early stages of a war] the greater the expenditure of life and funds, the greater the public expectation of significant accomplishment. This provokes an escalation of military effort, and the vicious cycle continues as the pressure of domestic expectations and domestic critics limit the President's willingness to withdraw without 'victory.'

Dorothy Buckton James, U.S. writer

(1932 - 1990)

Full name: Dorothy Margaret Buckton James.
