Book Description

George W. Bush has fundamentally changed America's place in the world. And for the worse, argue Roger Burbach and Jim Tarbell. Using September 11 not as tragedy but as a political opportunity, Bush has given us the war on terror, the blitzkrieg in Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, the doctrine of pre-emptive war, the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and an immense war bill that saps the economy and vital domestic programmes.

The clique surrounding Bush has altered US foreign policy more dramatically than at any tome since the onest of the Cold War. In some neo-conservative circles the word 'empire' is back in fashion. Ironically, a great republic that broke away from the British empire is now suppoesd to be proud of its new imperial role. This book explains how the neo-cons, the Christian right and the petro-military complex have hijacked US foreign policy. It asks some very important questions. what is the price Americans will have to pay for this new era of endless projections of American military might-a price measured in terms of a never ending fear of terrorism; mushrooming spending on security, defence, and overseas military adventures; the erosion of civil liberties inside the United States; and most importantly the deaths abroad of tens of thousands of innocent civilian and military combatants on both sides?

At the heart of this distrubing 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 them. Is the US in danger of going down that road? Who around George W. Bush is pushing him along that path? Can Americans change direction and restore America's reputation in the world into the shining 'city on the hill'?
