The Costs and Consequences of the American Empire"
(New York: A Metropolitan / Owl Book -- Henry Holt and Company, 2000)
A SPEAR-CARRIER FOR EMPIRE
"Instead of demobilizing after the Cold War, teh United States imprudently committed itself to maintaining a global empire. This book is an account of the resentments our policies have built up and of the kinds of economic and political retribution that, particularly in Asia, may be their harvest in the twenty-first century." p. xxiii
"... Military conscription was in effect, and any young man had to go into the army -- the shortest but most dangerous, unpleasant, and unrewarding way to fulfill one's obligatory service -- or join the navy or air force for a longer but less physically demanding hitch." p. xxiii
"...American policy is seeding resentments that are bound to breed attempts at revenge." p. 65
"... Largely by design, much of America's imperial policies takes place well below the sight lines of the American public." p. 65
