The US government has routinely cited the threat of 'failed states' to global security, asserting the right to intervene with military force to prevent their further collapse. 'Failed states' are those on the peripheries of the global system, with either weak, nonexistent or dictatorial governments, allegedly incapable of satisfying the basic needs of their citizens and considered a danger to the world and to their own people. In this ground-breaking new book, celebrated thinker Noam Chomsky argues that America itself is a failed state, and is as such a danger to its people and, increasingly, to the world. He draws attention to the inescapable irony that the United States, long involved in democracy-building adventures around the world, desperately needs to revitalize democracy far closer to home.

Fine in Fine jacket. 6 1/4" X 9 1/2." 311 pages. Failed States offers a comprehensive analysis of a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations. It topples governments it deems illegitimate, invades states judged to threaten its interests, and imposes sanctions on regimes it opposes-while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis, and its policies and practices recklessly place the world on the brink of nuclear and environmental disaster.
