Publisher Comments:

A pointed diagnosis of the fate of democracy in an age of globalization and empire.
and#160;
This bookprobes the discrepancies separating President Bushandrsquo;s stated reasons for waging war on Iraq, the deeper political and economic reasons for the invasion, and the consequences of the Bush administrationandrsquo;s policies for the future of globalization.As the reconstruction of Iraq wobbles forward, tarnished by waves of deadly bombings and mounting charges of crony capitalism, many observers have come to consider the occupation a case study of the future of globalization, literally a harbinger of how the U.S. intends to build the post-9/11 world in its own image.and#160;

Globalization and Empire offers a critique of the arguments for waging war on Iraq, an examination of the foreign policy principles driving that war, an analysis of the economic dilemmas of globalization, and an exposandeacute; of the inner
