In Nemesis, Chalmers Johnson shows how American imperialism is undermining the republic, both economically and politically. Drawing comparisons to empires past, Johnson explores in vivid detail the likely consequences of dependence on a permanent war economy, and what it will mean when the globe's sole "hyperpower" is no longer capable of paying for the vaulting ambitions of its leaders - and becomes the greatest hyper-debtor of all time. In his stunning conclusion, Johnson suggests that the crisis of a financial breakdown could ultimately prove to be the only path to a renewed nation.
"[A] biting, often effective indictment of some ugly and troubling features of America's foreign policy and domestic politics." (Publishers Weekly)
