Summary
"In this timely and controversial book, renowned economist Deepak Lal explores the twin themes of empires and globalization and discusses the place of the United States in the current world order. Globalization is not a new phenomenon, but one that has always been associated in the past with empires. Far from being a negative force, globalization provides the promise of global prosperity, while empires provide the peace and stability of a world order to protect the trade and commerce that are essential for global economic development." "In Praise of Empires argues that not since the fall of the Roman Empire has there been a potential imperial power like the United States today. It asks the questions: Is a U.S. imperium needed for the globalization which breeds prosperity? And, although the United States has the military ability to run an empire, would U.S. domestic politics support this?"--Jacket
