Summary
Summary: "Nemesis offers a description of the trap into which the grandiose dreams of America's leaders have taken us. Drawing comaprisons to the Roman and British empires, Johnson explores in detail just what the unintended consquences our depence on a permanent war economy are likley to be. What does it mean when a nation's main intelligence organization becomes the president's private army? Or when the globe's sole "hyperpower," is no longer capable of paying for the vaulting ambitions of its leaders, becomes the greatest hyper-debtor of all time? Or when dreams of domination take off for the heavens." "A tale of American hubris, Nemesis details the world of secrecy surrounding Capitol Hill, from government-sanctioned domestic spying, to unacknowldged CIA prisons, to the dubious budgeting that backs it all up."--BOOK JACKET
