About Book
This volume gathers the work of leading left-wing analysts of imperialism to examine the burning question of our time - the nature and prospects of the US imperial project currently being given shape by war and occupation in the Middle East. Noam Chomsky, Immanuel Wallerstein, Peter Gowen and others discuss the dynamics at work behind the 'War on Terrorism'. Their analyses locate recent developments within a longer historical arc, and set out the central questions for research and debate: is US unilateralism and militarism a sign of the increasing strength of the world's only remaining superpower? Or a desperate response to the erosion of the strategy it developed for ensuring its leadership over the advanced capitalist world during the Cold War? Essays by Barbara Epstein, Amlya Kumar Bagchi and others also examine the prospects for the resistance to imperialism in the United States and globally.
