Summary
After the Soviet Union imploded, the United States was described first as the globe's "lone superpower," then as "reluctant sheriff," and, in the wake of 9/11, as a "New Rome." In this important best-seller, Chalmers Johnson explores the new militarism that is transforming America and compelling its people to pick up the burden of empire. Recalling the classic warnings against militarism -- from George Washington's farewell address to Dwight Eisenhower's denunciation of the military-industrial complex -- Johnson turns to the present, showing that this militarism is already putting an end to the age of globalization, bankrupting the United Sates, and creating conditions for a new century of virulent blowback. The Sorrows of Empire suggests that the former American republic has already crossed its Rubicon -- with the Pentagon in the lead
