    schema:reviewBody ""In this book noted sociologist Michael Mann argues that the "new American imperialism" is actually little more than a new militarism. Dissecting the economic, political, military and ideological resources available to the US, Mann concludes that they are so uneven as to generate only an "incoherent Empire" and increasing world disorder." "The incoherent Empire is also analysed in action - in Afghanistan, in the war against terrorism, and against "rogue states," especially North Korea and Iraq. Its strategies seemed doomed only to create more international terrorists and increase the desire of the rogues to acquire weapons of mass destruction; they also provoke a virtual "crusade" against Muslims. The world will become more and more dangerous, argues Mann, unless the US abandons this trajectory and adopts the more realistic global leadership strategies laid out in this book."--Jacket." ;
