"Deeply informed, balanced, and full of insights, this perceptive inquiry explores the rational basis for the aggressive unilateralism of the Bush administration that has frightened much of the world, arguing plausibly that it" is based on a largely accurate reading of the long-term economic and geopolitical threats facing US capitalism". It more than fulfills its goal of contributing to 'an understanding of the strange and frightening world' that is taking shape."
"Of all those seeking to make sense of rampant American power, Alex Callinicos succeeds, outstandingly with his razor-sharp analysis and eloquent warning to us all."
