Summary

This book offers a broader and deeper examination of the dynamics of U. S. Imperialism than previous books. Petras analyzes imperialism not only as economic domination, showing that its impact in the world takes many forms, including cultural, political, and historical. He points to the disruptive and extractive effects it has on other world regional economies and cultures. Capitalism and imperialism take diverse forms but all are intimately tied to the projection of state power in the service of capital, a strategy designed to advance the geopolitical and economic interests of the U. S. economic elite and ruling class--interests that are equated with the "U. S. national interest."
