Review quote

There is no book quite like this, with its sweep and viewpoint, both critical and constructive, offering a positive alternative to the global empire project being presently pursued. There is a huge empire literature, pro and con, and it would be important to differentiate this book carefully so that it is not regarded as one more critique of the American empire project. Michael Mann, David Harvey, Andrew Bacevich, others have already contributed excellent critiques, but Paupp has achieved something more by coupling his critique with a well-articulated alternative vision of a future world order based on law, equity, and sustainability. David Held, Archibugi, and others have attempted this, but without the critique. -- Professor Richard Falk, Princeton University and Visiting Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara My colleague Dr. Paupp's work amounts to the thinking man's Da Vinci Code. If it is a brilliant treasure trove of wisdom aimed at putting equity to work for all of mankind rather than a favored few and that all of the world's inhabitants should have equal access to its resources - both physical and intellectual. -- Larry Birns, Director, Council on Hemispheric Affairs Unfortunately, at a time when international cooperation is absolutely required, the American Empire is engaged in highly destructive confrontational behavior. It is this structural, on-going criminal behavior which is fully addressed so well by Terry Paupp in his new book. In so doing, he also proposes a comprehensive alternative strategy which calls for the development of a new global ethic based on a deep commitment to the idea of an inclusive global community. -- Bill Wickersham, Adjunct Professor of Peace Studies, University of Missouri, Columbia Exodus from Empire offers, confidently, a way to see that another world is possible. It's light in a time of darkness. It will definitely contribute to, if not shape, the current conversation about what to do regarding US hegemony. -- Professor Brian Foley, Florida Coastal School of Lawshow more
