Description

In this book, four distinguished scholars level a powerful critique of the rapid expansion of the emerging American empire and its oppressive and destructive political, military, and economic policies. Arguing that a global Pax Americana is internationally disastrous, the authors demonstrate how America's imperialism inevitably leads to rampant irreversible ecological devastation, expanding military force for imperialistic purposes, and a grossly inequitable distribution of goods--all leading to the diminished well-being of human communities.

Reviews

Publishers Weekly (April 3, 2006) "Students of American history, government, and political science, will feel quite at home within these pages, but nonacademics may need to dust off their college textx to remember the particulars of, say, the Marshall Plan."
