American Empire

Ha'aretz has an interesting review of Niall Fergusson's Colossus: The Price of America's Empire -

Liberty, equality - and control
In a situation lacking a pole of power, who will in future prevent the sort of genocide that might have been initiated in Kosovo? Who will be able to push ahead a peace process in the Middle East? Who will be able to contend with a murderous fundamentalist Islam? Will the French be able to do so by preventing Muslim females from covering their heads in French public schools?
