Imperial Delusions: American Militarism and Endless War

by

Imperial Delusions: American Militarism and Endless War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

mil.i.ta.rism, n, A military state or condition; reliance on military force in administering government. A characteristic of regimes like the Soviet Union or communist China, militarism is rarely associated with American society and government. Rather, Americans see their nation as the peaceful mediator, intervening in world affairs only to make the world safe for democracy. The uncomfortable reality, however, scarcely fits this kind of fanciful mythology. In this hard-hitting critique, Carl Boggs argues that the United States is dominated by a new militarism, one that has become more potent and menacing since 9/11. He skillfully explores the origins and development of this new militarism and shows its devastating effects on American society and foreign policy. As America expands its influence, Imperial Delusions demonstrates how Americans have become addicted to war allowing a military culture to control their interactions with each other and the world.

Synopsis:

This book explores the rise of a new militarism in America since the end of the Cold War. Carl Boggs deftly shows how the culture of militarism is transforming American society and foreign policy, leading Americans to dominate the world without examining the consequences.
