Read in March, 2003

Concise and easy to read description of American Imperialism. Parenti spells out how American foreign policy and domestic policy serves the interests of global capital and the wealthy political-economic elite through global economic imperialism. He argues that the empire of the American state is controlled and gained at the expense of the American people and our republic, with nothing gained for the common citizen. His argument is effective, and this book is a great addition to other texts about globalization and class inequality around the world.
