Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Full Spectrum Dominance [The American Empire Project] Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The worlds foremost intellectual activist narrates his irrefutable analysis of Americas pursuit of total domination and the catastrophic consequences that are sure to follow

The United States is in the process of staking out not just the globe but the last unarmed spot in our neighborhood—the heavens—as a militarized sphere of influence. Our earth and its skies are, for the Bush administration, the final frontiers of imperial control. In Hegemony or Survival, Noam Chomsky investigates how we came to this moment, what kind of peril we find ourselves in, and why our rulers are willing to jeopardize the future of our species.

With the striking logic that is his trademark, Chomsky dissects Americas quest for global supremacy, tracking the U.S. governments aggressive pursuit of policies intended to achieve “full spectrum dominance” at any cost. He lays out vividly how the various strands of policy cohere in a drive for hegemony that ultimately threatens our survival. In our era, he argues, empire is a recipe for an earthly wasteland.

Lucid, rigorous, and thoroughly documented, Hegemony or Survival promises to be Chomskys most urgent and sweeping work in years, certain to spark widespread debate.
