Abstract

As the United States casts an increasingly dominant shadow in world affairs, resentment from the international community widens. In The State of the American Empire, Stephen Burman lays bare the global scope of the political, economic, cultural, and military might of a country that, paradoxically, was founded in a rebellion against imperialism. Combining forensic analysis with detailed full-color graphics, Burman provides a comprehensive overview of the countries that are dependent on U.S. trade or investment, or are inhabited by U.S. troops. Liberally illustrated with maps that display America's global footprint, from its military interventions to its trading partners, The State of the American Empire interrogates every aspect of this new empire to reveal its roots, its likely duration, and, most important, its impact on the rest of the world.
