Description
In the years after the Soviet Union imploded, the United States was described first as the globe's "lone superpower," then as "reluctant sheriff," next as the "indispensable nation," and, in the wake of 9/11, as a "New Rome." In this important and bestselling book, Chalmers Johnson explores the new militarism that is transforming America and compelling its people to pick up the burden of empire.
