In the years after the Soviet Union imploded, the United States was described first as the globe抯 搇one superpower,?then as a 搑eluctant sheriff,?next as the 搃ndispensable nation,?and now, in the wake of 9/11, as a ?ew Rome.?Here, Chalmers Johnson thoroughly explores the new militarism that is transforming America and compelling its people to pick up the burden of empire.

Reminding us of the classic warnings against militarism梖rom George Washington抯 farewell address to Dwight Eisenhower抯 denunciation of the military-industrial complex桱ohnson uncovers its roots deep in our past. Turning to the present, he maps America抯 expanding empire of military bases and the vast web of services that supports them. He offers a vivid look at the new caste of professional warriors who have infiltrated multiple branches of government, who classify as 搒ecret?everything they do, and for whom the manipulation of the military budget is of vital interest.

Among Johnson抯 provocative conclusions is that American militarism is 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梬ith the Pentagon leading the way.
