The United States Department of Defense has carved the world into five pieces, called unified military commands, maintaining troops and military leadership in each. The geographic boundaries of the unified commands, which together encompass the entire globe, "are set in a way that makes sense to us (the U.S.) for political, military, cultural sorts of reasons," according to the DOD. Yet outside military and defense circles, the potential impact of post-1990 American strategic reach―or perhaps overreach―has not been given sufficient attention. In Strategy for Empire, Brian Loveman fills that gap by raising the key questions all students should be considering: Even under the perilous conditions imposed by global terrorism, diffusion of weapons of mass destruction, and international "anarchy," can the United States afford, and should it seek to justify, assigning responsibility to combatant commanders for every area of the globe and maintaining a military presence in well over 100 countries? Can a foreign policy of preemptive deterrence and covert operations around the globe against terrorists, international criminal organizations, and so-called rogue states be compatible with American constitutional democracy? Or has the United States itself become a rogue superpower, at risk of losing its democratic soul and institutions at home and its moral credibility abroad in its efforts to manage a global empire through regional military commands?

This timely reader provides answers to these questions from the perspective of American presidents, policymakers, military officers, establishment think tanks, and critical scholars. The text and accompanying CD collect in one place a synthesis of official and semi-official views of post-1990 regional security agendas and of the evolving perception of post-Cold War threat scenarios. The book begins with President George Bush's "The National Security Strategy of the United States of America" ( September 2002); then presents the views of military strategists, governmen

From the Inside Flap:

"STRATEGY FOR EMPIRE offers readers a balanced and insightful interpretation of the most momentous global issue of our time whither America? What makes this volume so valuable is its analysis of this question from a variety of regional and political angles. Brian Loveman is to be commended for pulling together such a collection so effectively." --Richard Falk, Princeton University

"This timely book offers a tour of different perspectives on the purpose and role of American power in the contemporary era, demonstrates how this global context is likely to shape regional security arrangements over the coming years, and considers the range of consequences of American foreign policy on regional developments." --Michael Barnett, University of Wisconsin-Madison
