American Diplomacy: Sixtieth-Anniversary Expanded Edition (Walgreen Foundation Lectures) by George F. Kennan and John J. Mearsheimer
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0226431487 | ISBN-13: 9780226431482 | 192 pages | EPUB | 0,24 MB

For more than sixty years, George F. Kennan’s American Diplomacy has been a standard work on American foreign policy. Drawing on his considerable diplomatic experience and expertise, Kennan offers an overview and critique of the foreign policy of an emerging great power whose claims to rightness often spill over into self-righteousness, whose ambitions conflict with power realities, whose judgmentalism precludes the interests of other states, and whose domestic politics frequently prevent prudent policies and result in overstretch.
Imperial Ambitions: Conversations on the Post-9/11 World

Imperial Ambitions: Conversations on the Post-9/11 World (American Empire Project) by Noam Chomsky, David Barsamian
Publisher: Macmillan Audio | Number Of Pages: | Publication Date: 2005-10-05 | ISBN-10: 159397793X | MP3, 256 kbps | 420 Mb

In this important program of interviews conducted by award-winning radio journalist David Barsamian, Noam Chomsky discusses America's policies in the increasingly unstable world. With his famous insight, lucidity, and redoubtable grasp of history, Chomsky offers his views on the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the doctrine of -preemptive+ strikes against so-called rogue states, and the prospects of the second Bush administration, warning of the growing threat to international peace posed by the U.S. drive for domination. In his inimitable style, Chomsky also dissects the propaganda system that fabricates a mythic past and airbrushes inconvenient facts out of history.Barsamian, recipient of the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Award for independent journalism, has conducted more interviews and radio broadcasts with Chomsky than has any other journalist.

Blood in the Sand: Imperial Fantasies, Right-Wing Ambitions, and the Erosion of American Democracy
University Press of Kentucky / 30 Sep 2005 | 207 pages | ISBN: 0813123674 | PDF | 1.4Mb

Blood in the Sand is Stephen Eric Bronner's powerful critique of the current state of American foreign and domestic policy, ranging from the government's initial response to 9/11 and the assault on Afghanistan through the Iraqi War and the ramifications of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Bronner, who just months before the war began spent time in Iraq as part of a peace delegation, examines the state of twenty-first century America, a nation in which security against future terrorist attacks has become an obsession, "moral values" have turned into a slogan, and belief in the right to engage in a preemptive strike has come to define foreign policy. In Blood in the Sand, Bronner develops a bold new framework for a modern democratic foreign policy. In doing so, he passionately warns of the consequences of failure to alter the current course of events in America: extreme economic inequalities of power, political authoritarianism, imperialist ambitions, and an increasingly constrained cultural climate.
