Outstanding. A good read on the state of American Impirealism


a must read

by wheniwin on Jul 19, 2007

This book is a must read for anyone who thinks they know the United States and what we are all about. Well documented, but not your typical history book. Mr. Johnson answers the questions that we typically never ask, and asks questions that force us to reexamine ourselves as a nation. It puts the U.S. as an empire into historical context.


a real eye opener

this body works by chalmers johnson is a must read for everyone. i would highly reccomend it for anyone of voting age or about to vote in the upcoming election.please inform yourself . if you are a highschool history or current events teacher you owe it to your students to inform and disscuss this historical account of EMPERIALISM BY AND THROUGH YOUR GOVERNMENT. this book not only gives you an historical account of activities of your CIA it also gives you insight of reasons behind many of our political activities of the past.and future.
