Summary "In this hard-hitting critique, Carl Boggs argues that the United States is dominated by a new militarism, one that has become more potent and menacing since 9/11. He explores the origins and development of this new militarism and shows its devastating effects on American society, politics, and foreign policy." "As America expands its influence, Imperial Delusions demonstrates how Americans have become addicted to war - allowing a military culture to control their interactions with each other and the world."--BOOK JACKET
