Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Winner of the 2012 Prize for Best Book in Global and Transnational Sociology from the American Sociological Association, the American Political Science Associations' J. David Greenstone Book Award for the Best Book in Politics and History (2010-11), and one of Choice's "Outstanding Academic Titles" of 2012, Patterns of Empire comprehensively examines the two most powerful empires in modern history: the United States and Britain. Challenging the popular theory that the American empire is unique, Patterns of Empire shows how the policies, practices, forms, and historical dynamics of the American empire repeat those of the British, leading up to the present climate of economic decline, treacherous intervention in the Middle East, and overextended imperial confidence. A critical exercise in revisionist history and comparative social science, this book also offers a challenging theory of empire that recognizes the agency of non-Western peoples, the impact of global fields, and the limits of imperial power.
