The political theorist and author of After Progress examines the future of U.S. dominance on the world stage in this persuasive and provocative book.
The decline and fall of America's global empire is the central feature of today's geopolitical landscape. How we respond to this reality will determine much of our future trajectory, with implications that reach far beyond the limits of one nation's borders. In Decline and Fall, John Michael Greer examines the path we're on and presents a persuasive challenge to the conventional wisdom of empire.
Rather than asking if today's American empire should survive, Greer asks whether it canand goes on to demonstrate that the answer is "no." After exploring the inevitable consequences of imperial collapse, Decline and Fall proposes a renewal of democratic institutions as the only constructive way forward.
