Summary
The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene militarily against 'failed states' around the globe. In this much-anticipated follow-up to his international bestseller Hegemony or Survival, Chomsky turns the tables, showing how the United States itself shares features with other failed states-- and therefore is increasingly a danger to its own people and the world
Summary
The sequel to Hegemony or Survival offers a comprehensive analysis of the foreign and domestic policies of the United States--a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis and its policies and practices have recklessly placed the world on the brink of disaster
