Richly informed and written in an engaging style, Against Empire exposes the ruthless agenda and hidden costs of the U.S. empire today. Documenting the pretexts and lies used to justify violent intervention and maldevelopment abroad, Parenti shows how the conversion to a global economy is a victory of finance capital over democracy.


As much of the world suffers unspeakable misery and the Third-Worldization of the United States accelerates, civil society is impoverished by policies that benefit rich and powerful transnational corporations and the national security state. Hard-won gains made by ordinary people are swept away.


“A valuable rebuttal to the drumbeat...from the right.” ―New York Times Book Review


“Entertainingly written.” ―Publishers Weekly


“Parenti writes clear, smooth, often provocative prose, has a way of cutting to the heart of complex issues and knows how to tell a story." ―Allan Johnson, Author of Human Arrangements

Review:

"Against Empire focuses on exposing the agenda and costs of U.S. expansion in the world and documents the lies used to justify violent intervention in world politics, considering how economics plays into political decision-making process and providing a strong case for considering past wrongs and future changes. An excellent, strong title."—Midwest Book Review
