Product Details


“Michael Mann applies the framework he developed in his classic work The Sources of Social Power to the American empire. He finds that its economic and ideological foundations are flimsy and that its only real strength is an ability to bully weak Third World countries. The United States wields ‘power but not authority’ and has succumbed to ‘ruthless arrogance leading to overconfidence and hubris.’ This is an important, provocative diagnosis by an experienced social analyst.”—Chalmers Johnson
