The American Empire and the Commonwealth of God
A Political, Economic, Religious Statement199Skickas inom 10-15 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.In this book, four distinguished scholars level a powerful critique of the rapid expansion of the emerging American empire and its oppressive and destructive political, military, and economic policies. Arguing that a global Pax Americana is internationally disastrous, the authors demonstrate how America's imperialism inevitably leads to rampant irreversible ecological devastation, expanding military force for imperialistic purposes, and a grossly inequitable distribution of goods--all leading to the diminished well-being of human communities.
