About the Author:

Andrew Bacevich teaches international relations at Boston University. He has recently published American Empire: The Realities and Consequences of U.S. Diplomacy to considerable acclaim. He lives in Walpole, Massachusetts.

Review:

This captivating collection addresses the most important issue facing the United States in the coming century. (Richard H. Kohn, Chair, Curriculum in Peace, War, and Defense, Professor of History, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, former Chief of)

Bacevich has performed a valuable service. (David Pryce-Jones)

First-rate...a most valuable collection. (Walter LaFeber)

He has done the ongoing debate about America's role in the world a great service by bringing these pieces together in a convenient package. (Virginia Quarterly Review)

An outstanding introduction to the growing debate on the implications and import of US 'hyperpower.' (CHOICE)

...Provides a panoramic view of the empire debate... (Concord Bridge)

...This collection reflects most of the distribution curve of current opinion on the subject. (The American Conservative)

...Well worth reading for...bracing arguments, pro and con, on whether or in what sense America is an empire. (First Things)

The essays collected...are a curious amalgam of military hubris and cultural anxiety: they dutifully document both America's truly awesome military reach and the widespread national uncertainty about what to do with it. (The New York Review Of Books)

An especially useful guide to a complex and controversial debate. (Michael Cox Royal United Services Institute Journal)
