This collection of nineteen pieces by Lewis H Lapham scrutinise America's national pathology of greed and self-aggrandisement. In this work, Lapham concludes that America has engaged in a dissolute foreign policy, suffered a general loss of courage, humour and clear mindedness and made a steady retreat from the idea of democracy.
