"The Sorrows of Empire" scrutinises the policies, past and present, that have led to American imperialism and the massive defence spending and overseas military deployment that necessarily accompany it. The author suggests that the US could suffer the same "overstretch" that led to the demise of the Soviet Union. Chalmers Johnson outlines the cost of Empire, both for the American people and for the rest of the world. "The Sorrows of Empire" is a sombre and cogent analysis and is written with an authority that is difficult to ignore.

a must read
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.
