Book Description Penguin Books India, 2011. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. The American road to Baghdad started when the first English settlers landed in Virginia determined to impose their values on everyone they encountered. Simultaneously, the first Russians crossed the Urals and the two empires that would dominate the twentieth century were born. Empires Apart covers the history of the Americans and Russians from the Vikings to the present day. It shows the two empires developed in parallel as they expanded to the Pacific and launched wars against the nations around them. They both developed an imperial `ideology` that was central to the way they perceived themselves. Then, in the period between the American Civil War and the Spanish?American War, the American ideology changed and the lust for new territory to conquer largely disappeared. It is argued that what caused this change was the advent of Big Business which set out to conquer the world in a different way. Soon after, the ideology of the Russian Empire also changed with the advent of Communism. The key argument of this book is that these changes did not alter the core imperial values of either nation. Both nations have shown that they are still willing to use military force and clandestine intrigue to enforce imperial control. To support these arguments, it is necessary to strip away many preconceptions of popular history and this book uses numerous anecdotes to illustrate events as they really happened. The most pervasive preconception is that America has never been an `imperial` power. By simultaneously recounting the histories of the two nations this preconception is decisively dissolved, demonstrating the true nature of America`s global ambitions. For those interested in revisiting orthodox history, Empires Apart is the definitive companion to geopolitics and post-cold war political strategies Printed Pages: 608. Bookseller Inventory # 20525
