    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

    I decided to read this book in an attempt to discover founded arguments from a liberal point of view. What I found was a barrage of emotional arguments utilizing strong accusatory language without basis for his reasoning. After listening to the author attack several events without providing sufficient basis, I grew to a general distrust of his commentary. I have concluded that the book is designed to foster alarm in U.S. policies instead of true investigative journalism. Noam Chomsky truly disappoints in this work.
