    For more than half a century, the United States has been pursuing a grand imperial strategy with the aim of staking out the globe. Our leaders have shown themselves willing, as in the Cuban missile crisis, to follow the dream of dominance no matter how high the risks. Now the Bush administration is intensifying this process, driving us toward the final frontiers of imperial control, toward a choice between the prerogatives of power and a livable Earth.

    Overall

    This books "explains" today's policies by comparing it to America's actions throughout the last century. I guess it could be considered to be a left leaning book, but I found it very balanced and well reasoned. It is always helpful to compare current events with the past. I was also surprised to hear the author express optimism during a recent televised forum; he thinks the American public is better informed about the Iraq war today than it was during the beginning of the Vietnam war - it took many years before there was any awareness about Vietnam. This is not a rant! I think even conservatives should read this and could find value in it.
