A look at America"s worldwide supremacy

This book does a brillint job of showing why the liberal institutions in the US give us the flexibility to dominate economically, educationall and in the media. It also goes into the prominent role the US plays in maintaining the inernational order. The book also claims that a strong militay and worldwide bases play an important role in peventing international anarchy. The case is made that the US empire is a voluntary one and that our alliances are essenial to maintining our dominence and international order. This is one of the very best and shortest book I have read on the question of the US empire.

Informative book full of FACTS

This book basically dispells all the talk of weakness, in reference to Ameica, that we hear these days. The beginning is a little slow, but once you get into the topic chapters it becomes more interesting. The authors point out that terrorism is a tactic. President Bush just started mentioning this in the last few months. However, the book has been out for a while. The book is very good for international relations and political science folks. It is a very good book to pull facts out for your papers, research, and general education on the subject.
