The creator of the indispensable website TomDispatch.com dissects the US urge to dominate the world. Since 2001, he has written regular reports for his popular site providing a badly needed insight into US militarism and its effects both at home and abroad. Engelhardt documents Washington's ongoing commitment to aggressive militarism and reveals damning information about the reliance of the US on their air force. He also exposes how the US empire has deep historical roots that precede the Bush administration and continue into Obama's reign. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

Political and security conditions of U.S. withdrawal
Future U.S. security responsibilities in Iraq.
A critical question surrounding the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq is Iraq's internal security and stability. Although the U.S. withdrawal plan is designed with care to avoid weakening Iraq's security, the end of U.S. occupation may alter the strategies of the main Iraqi political actors, each of which has enough armed power to be able to shatter Iraq's domestic peace. In view of the potential for insecurity in Iraq, the United States cannot afford to take a passive or reactive stance. To anticipate dangers and act purposefully, U.S. policy-makers need a dynamic analytic framework with which to examine the shifting motivations and capabilities of the actors that affect Iraq's security. This monograph offers such a framework.
