Against Empire

Against Empire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Richly informed and written in an engaging style, Against Empire exposes the ruthless agenda and hidden costs of the U.S. empire today. Documenting the pretexts and lies used to justify violent intervention and maldevelopment abroad, Parenti shows how the conversion to a global economy is a victory of finance capital over democracy.

As much of the world suffers unspeakable misery and the Third-Worldization of the United States accelerates, civil society is impoverished by policies that benefit rich and powerful transnational corporations and the national security state. Hard-won gains made by ordinary people are swept away.

Book News Annotation:

Parenti, one of our most trenchant (and engaging) political analysts, exposes the ruthless agenda and hidden costs of the US empire. Documenting the pretexts and lies used to justify violent intervention and maldevelopment abroad, he convincingly demonstrates how the conversion to a global economy is a victory of finance capital over democracy. He also offers compelling alternatives for progressive change.
