Naked Imperialism; The U.S. Pursuit Of Global Dominance

by John Bellamy Foster
£13.99   paperback  Monthly Review Press (2006)

Naked Imperialism; The U.S. Pursuit Of Global Dominance by John Bellamy Foster During the Cold War years, mainstream commentators were quick to dismiss the idea that the United States was an imperialist power. Even when US interventions led to the overthrow of popular governments, as in Iran, Guatemala, or the Congo, or wholesale war, as in Vietnam, this fiction remained intact. During the 1990s and especially since September 11, 2001, however, it has crumbled. Washington proclaimed the "war on terror" and invaded Afghanistan and later Iraq making its imperial ambitions clear. Today, the need for a US empire is widely defeated by mainstream analysts and commentators.
John Ballamy Foster's Naked Imperialism examines this important transformation in U.S. global policy and ideology, showing the political and economic roots of the new militarism and it's consequences both in the global and local context. Foster shows how U.S.-led global capitalism is prepairing the way for a new age of barbarism and demonstrares the necessity and solidarity on a global scale.
