The sorrows of empire, Paperback / softback Book

The sorrows of empire Paperback / softback


A stunning exposure of the policies that have led to American imperialism and the massive military deployment that accompanies it, The Sorrows of Empire proposes that the US could suffer the same "overstretch" that led to the demise of the Soviet Union.

Johnson outlines the cost of Empire, both for the American people and their Republic, and for the rest of the world.

Eloquent and impassioned, The Sorrows of Empire is a sombre and cogent analysis, written with an authority that is impossible to ignore.
