The Sorrows of Empire: How the American People Lost by Chalmers Johnson



"The Sorrows of Empire" scrutinises the policies, past and present, that have led to American imperialism and the massive defence spending and overseas military deployment that necessarily accompany it. The author suggests that the US could suffer the same "overstretch" that led to the demise of the Soviet Union. Chalmers Johnson outlines the cost of Empire, both for the American people and for the rest of the world. "The Sorrows of Empire" is a sombre and cogent analysis and is written with an authority that is difficult to ignore.
