Challenging Empire: How People, Governments, and the UN Defy US Power

by

Challenging Empire: How People, Governments, and the UN Defy US Power Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The rise of U.S. unilateralism, the doctrine of preemptive war, particularly in the Middle East, and the challenge of reclaiming the UN's role in the global peace movement.

Book News Annotation:

Taking a worldwide and practical approach in agreement with the statement by the New York Times that global popular opinion is the "second superpower," Bennis (Institute for Policy Studies) describes the possibility of "reclaiming" the United Nations as part of an international peace movement as well as the activities and intentions behind the worldwide protest against the Iraq war in 2003. Highly opinionated and firmly in opposition to the latest Bush administration, Bennis describes how individuals, organizations, social movements and states maintained an eight-month period of resistance to the war in Iraq despite the best efforts of the US, focusing on resistance to the military, diplomatic and political elements of empire. She encourages the UN to follow its own charter more closely and seek to save the world from wars, particularly wars of empire.
