Imperial Overstretch

George W. Bush and the Hubris of Empire


George W. Bush has fundamentally changed Americas place in the world. In some neo-conservative circles the word empire is back in fashion, and a great republic that broke away from the British empire is now supposed to be proud of its new imperial role. This book explains how the neo-conservatives and the petro-military complex have hijacked US foreign policy. It examines the price that Americans will have to pay for this new era of unlimited US military might - a neverending fear of terrorism, mushrooming defence and security spending, the erosion of civil liberties at home, and the deaths abroad of tens of thousands of civilians and military combatants. At the heart of this disturbing and timely book is the ultimate question. Previous empires have foundered on the rock of imperial overstretch - the costs of trying to run and protect empires eventually outstripping the capacity and willingness of the citizenry to pay for them. Is the US in danger of going down that road? Who around George Dubya Bush is pushing him along that path?
