This volume gathers the work of leading left-wing analysts of
imperialism to examine the burning question of our time--the nature
and prospects of the U.S. imperial project currently being given
shape by war and occupation in the Middle East.
Noam Chomsky, Immanuel Wallerstein, Peter Gowan, and others
discuss the dynamics at work behind the "War on Terrorism." Their
analyses locate recent developments within a longer historical arc,
and set out the central questions for research and debate: Is U.S.
unilateralism and militarism a sign of the increasing strength of
the world's only remaining superpower? Or a desperate response to
the erosion of the strategy it developed for ensuring its
leadership over the advanced capitalist world during the Cold War?
Essays by Barbara Epstein, Amiya Kumar Bagchi and others also
examine the prospects for the resistance to imperialism in the
United States and globally.
Pox Americana brings together a range of insights and
perspectives that were originally presented at a conference in
Burlington, Vermont, to honor Harry Magdoff on the occasion of his
ninetieth birthday. It is a fitting tribute to Magdoff's pioneering
analyses of U.S. imperialism and a testimony to the resilience and
fruitfulness of the radical tradition.
