Description

This collection of articles brings together in one place the contemporary and multifaceted nature of US imperialism. The book examines recent shifts in the character of Washington's strategies for resurrecting the economic and political power of the US, and also assesses areas of opposition to that policy. Written by an array of prominent intellectuals from around the world, these articles were the basis for a major conference on US imperialism held in Sheffield (UK) in April 1988. They have all been revised and up-dated for publication.show more
