Colossus: The Rise and Fall of the American Empire
"Is America an empire? Few Americans would say so. Yet never before in the history of the world has one nation been so far ahead of all others in its military, economic, cultural and political power. In warfare the United States is close to "full spectrum dominance" all over the globe. Its free market model has left the alternatives for dead. Its popular culture, too, has a universal appeal. And its foreign policy now explicitly aims at changing other peoples' regimes and rebuilding their nations. If this isn't an empire, what is it?"."In Colossus, Niall Ferguson ranges across the entire history of America's foreign entanglements, examining all the different dimensions - military, economic, cultural and political - of American power and fusing them into a single coherent vision. Along the way, he confronts the challenges America faces from its principal rivals for hegemony, the European Union and China. Perhaps most important, he offers a compelling and original analysis of the profound interconnection between this country's domestic economic health and its foreign affairs - the bottom line of imperialism, American style." "At once a work of history and contemporary political economy, Niall Ferguson's Colossus is by any measure a major achievement - a peerless reckoning with American power that will need to be read by any thinking citizen of this unspoken empire."--BOOK JACKET.
