Description: As the United States casts an increasingly dominant shadow in world affairs, resentment from the international community widens. InThe Atlas of the American Empire,Stephen Burman lays bare the global scope of the political, economic, cultural, and military might of a country that, paradoxically, was founded in a rebellion against imperialism. Combining forensic analysis with detailed full-color graphics, Burman provides a comprehensive overview of the countries that are dependent on U.S. trade or investment, or are inhabited by U.S. troops. He covers such major issues as trade, dependency on natural resources, direct foreign investment, aid, international organizations, and politics and security. He also considers the effects of U.S. involvement on people--both Americans and other nationalities--along with perceptions about U.S. culture and the dominance of the English language. Liberally illustrated with maps that display America's global footprint, from its military interventions to its trading partners,The Atlas of the American Empireinterrogates every aspect of this new empire to reveal its roots, its likely duration, and, most importantly, its impact on the rest of the world.
