Synopsis: This stellar collection of Paul Craig Roberts essays dating from 2013

explores the extreme dangers in Washington's imposition of vassalage

on other countries and Washington’s resurrection of distrust among

nuclear powers, the very distrust that Reagan and Gorbachev worked to

eliminate.

Roberts explains how the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 removed

the only check on Washington's ability to act unilaterally. The United

States’ position as the sole remaining superpower led to the euphoric

proclamation of “the end of history” and to Washington’s presumption of

the victory of “American democratic-capitalism” over all other systems.

The neoconservatives became entrenched in successive American

administrations, both Republican and Democratic. Their ideology of US

global hegemony―the doctrine that no other power will be allowed to

arise that could constrain US unilateral action―has become a

foundational premise of US foreign policy and has led to reckless

intervention in Ukraine and an irresponsible assault on Russian national

interest.

In pursuit of hegemony, Washington has expanded NATO to Russia’s

border, instigated “color revolutions” in former constituent parts of the

Soviet Union, announced a “pivot to Asia” to encircle China, orchestrated

a coup in Ukraine, demonized Putin, and imposed warlike sanctions

against Russia. These reckless and irresponsible actions have brought

back the risk of nuclear war.

This succession of events has impelled Roberts―following an illustrious

career in government, journalism and academia―to perform the

clarifying function abandoned by the mainstream media of examining the

agendas at work and the risks entailed. His insightful commentary is

followed all over the world. In February 2015, Roberts was invited to

address a major International conference in Moscow hosted by Institutes

of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Moscow State Institute of

International Relations, where he delivered the address which is the title

of this book.

In Roberts’ assessment, Washington's drive for hegemony is not only

unnecessary but unrealistic and filled with peril for Americans and the

world at large. This book is a call to awareness that ignorance and

propaganda are leading the world toward unspeakable disaster.
