Imperial Overstretch: George W. Bush and the Hubris of Empire

Передняя обложка
Zed Books, 4 сент. 2004 г. - Всего страниц: 240
Burbach and Tarbell argue that George W. Bush has fundamentally changed America's place in the world--for the worse. Hijacked by neoconservatives and the petro-military complex, the nation that once broke from an empire is swiftly becoming an empire itself. Fed by wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; a never-ending fear of terrorism; mushrooming defense expenditures; and the slow but steady erosion of civil liberties on the home front, is this empire in danger of becoming too large to survive? What are the costs--in lives at home and abroad--of failure? Who is driving these policies? And--most important of all--can Americans change direction and restore America's reputation in the world as the shining "city on the hill"?
