Description - Empire or Republic? by James Petras

This volume makes the necessary, but much overlooked, link between America's international policies and her domestic situation. The authors contend that the Reagan, Bush and Clinton administrations have all focused on global leadership to the detriment of pressing social, economic and political problems at home. The continuing large-scale diversion of financial and human resources to promote US overseas interests will further undermine the possibilities for revitalizing the national economy. By situating urban blight, unemployment, poverty and other domestic ills within a global context, Petras and Morley take a step toward restructuring US policy so as to decrease the mounting socio-economic pressures that are straining the fabric of American society.
