The author of the bestselling Blowback Trilogy reflects on Americas waning power in a masterful collection of essays

In his prophetic book Blowback, published before 9/11, Chalmers Johnson warned that our secret operations in Iraq and elsewhere around the globe would exact a price at home. Now, in a brilliant series of essays written over the last three years, Johnson measures that price and the resulting dangers America faces. Our reliance on Pentagon economics, a global empire of bases, and war without end is, he declares, nothing short of a suicide option.

Dismantling the Empire explores the subjects for which Johnson is now famous, from the origins of blowback to Barack Obamas Afghanistan conundrum, including our inept spies, our bad behavior in other countries, our ill-fought wars, and our capitulation to a military that has taken ever more control of the federal budget. There is, he proposes, only one way out: President Obama must begin to dismantle the empire before the Pentagon dismantles the American Dream. If we do not learn from the fates of past empires, he suggests, our decline and fall are foreordained. This is Johnson at his best: delivering both a warning and an urgent prescription for a remedy.

Описание: A "New York Times "bestseller, "Nemesis "is Chalmers Johnson's "fiercest book--and his best" (Andrew J. Bacevich) In his prophetic book "Blowback," Chalmers Johnson linked the CIA's clandestine activities abroad to disaster at home. In "The Sorrows of Empire," he explored the ways in which the growth of American militarism and the garrisoning of the planet have jeopardized our stability. In "Nemesis," the bestselling and final volume in what has become known as the Blowback Trilogy, he shows how imperial overstretch is undermining the republic itself, both economically and politically.
 
Delving into new areas--from plans to militarize outer space to Constitution-breaking presidential activities at home and the devastating corruption of a toothless Congress--"Nemesis "offers a striking description of the trap into which the reckless ambitions of America's leaders have taken us. Johnson confronts questions of pressing urgency: What are the unintended consequences of our dependence on a permanent war economy? What does it mean when a nation's main intelligence organization becomes the president's secret army? Or when the globe's sole "hyperpower" becomes the greatest hyper-debtor of all times?
 
Writing "as if the very existence of the nation is at stake" ("San Francisco Chronicle"), Johnson offers his most "bracing" and "important" ("Los Angeles Times") exploration of the crisis facing America.

Описание: "Impressive . . . a powerful indictment of U.S. military and foreign policy."
-"Los Angeles Times Book Review," front page
In the years after the Soviet Union imploded, the United States was described first as the globe's "lone superpower," then as a "reluctant sheriff," next as the "indispensable nation," and in the wake of 9/11, as a "New Rome." In this important national bestseller, Chalmers Johnson thoroughly explores the new militarism that is transforming America and compelling us to pick up the burden of empire.
Recalling the classic warnings against militarism-from George Washington's Farewell Address to Dwight Eisenhower's denunciation of the military-industrial complex-Johnson uncovers its roots deep in our past. Turning to the present, he maps America's expanding empire of military bases and the vast web of services that support them. He offers a vivid look at the new caste of professional militarists who have infiltrated multiple branches of government, who classify as "secret" everything they do, and for whom the manipulation of the military budget is of vital interest.
Among Johnson's provocative conclusions is that American militarism is already putting an end to the age of globalization and bankrupting the United States, even as it creates the conditions for a new century of virulent blowback. "The Sorrows of Empire" suggests that the former American republic has already crossed its Rubicon-with the Pentagon in the lead.

From the author of the bestselling Blowback Trilogy, an urgent call to confront America's waning power

In his prophetic book "Blowback," published before 9/11, Chalmers Johnson warned that our secret operations in Iraq and elsewhere around the globe would exact a price at home.

Описание: Now with a new and up-to-date Introduction by the author, the bestselling account of the effect of American global policies, hailed as "brilliant and iconoclastic" (Los Angeles Times)
The term "blowback," invented by the CIA, refers to the unintended results of American actions abroad. In this incisive and controversial book, Chalmers Johnson lays out in vivid detail the dangers faced by our overextended empire, which insists on projecting its military power to every corner of the earth and using American capital and markets to force global economic integration on its own terms. From a case of rape by U.S. servicemen in Okinawa to our role in Asia's financial crisis, from our early support for Saddam Hussein to our conduct in the Balkans, Johnson reveals the ways in which our misguided policies are planting the seeds of future disaster.
In a new edition that addresses recent international events from September 11 to the war in Iraq, this now classic book remains as prescient and powerful as ever.
Chalmers Johnson, president of the Japan Policy Research Institute and professor emeritus at the University of California, San Diego, has written numerous books on Japan and Asia, including "Miti and the Japanese Miracle" and "Japan: Who Governs?" He lives near San Diego.
In this timely, urgent, and iconoclastic study, Chalmers Johnson details the ongoing dangers faced by America's overextended empire, which projects its military power to every corner of the world and uses its capital and markets to force global economic integration on its own terms. Bruce Cummings, author of "The Origins of the Korean War," states: "As Johnson argues in this vital and engaging book, the halcyon days of American ascendancy cannot last: sooner or later, the stock market will fall, a counterbalancing force will emerge, or Washington will be unable to win a war without committing masses of ground troops, something for which the American body politic is utterly unprepared. Then all the latent contradictions in the American global position will emerge. When that happens--and it will--this honest, deeply learned, courageous, provocative, and witty man, Chalmers Johnson, will be your guide. Get hold of this prescient book and keep it."
"Stunning . . . No one has exposed the shortsightedness, hubris, corruption, and instability of our country's imperial overreach with such impassioned incisiveness. "Blowback" is a wake-up call for America."--John W. Dower, author of "Embracing Defeat," winner of the Pulitzer Prize
"I assigned "Blowback" in an Introduction to American Politics course at California State University, Hayward . . . I love the book and plan on using it in the Spring."--Wendy Sarvasy, Political Science department, California State University, Hayward
""Blowback" is expansive thinking . . . a straight-talking analysis of America's global conduct during the cold war and since, and what we're eventually going to pay for it."--Patrick Smith, "The Nation"
"Boldly provocative . . . A useful and timely alert."--Richard Bernstein, "The New York Times"
"Stunning . . . No one has exposed the shortsightedness, hubris, corruption, and instability of our country's imperial overreach with such impassioned incisiveness. "Blowback" is a wake-up call for America."--John W. Dower, author of "Embracing Defeat," winner of the Pulitzer Prize
""Blowback" is a powerful warning that the 'only superpower' complex is driving the United States into increasingly dangerous conflict with key countries throughout the world. Demolishing the argument that the United States is drifting into a new isolationism, Chalmers Johnson shows that American foreign policy is, in reality, more committed than ever to military intervention abroad and to the perpetuation of obsolete military alliances on terms incompatible with U.S. economic interests. This is original, hard-hitting 'must' reading for all those interested in the future U.
