CHALMERS JOHNSON on THE SORROWS OF EMPIRE: Beyond Iraq and Afghanistan, Chalmers Johnson maps America’s vast empire of military bases and the world that supports them. American militarism, he shows, is bankrupting the United States, even as it creates the conditions for a new century of virulent blowback. Chalmers Johnson’s bestselling book The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic is out now in paperback.
