Chalmers Johnson talked about his book Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic, the third installment of his trilogy American Empire Project published by Metropolitan Books. Mr. Johnson spoke with Gray Brechin, author of Imperial San Francisco: Urban Power, Earthly Ruin, and Farewell, Promised Land. In his book Mr. Johnson argues that the U.S. is now on the verge of internal collapse, due in large part to the vast expenditures required to maintain its ever-expanding empire. He compared the United States to the Roman Republic in its last days as it tried to sustain domestic democracy with an external empire. He also talked about the contradictions in U.S. foreign policy, political philosophy, and potential impact of military operations in Iraq.

This program at the Martin Luther King Middle School was sponsored by KPFA Radio, Global Exchange, and Cody’s Books. close
