American corporations have to beg for capital from the cash-rich Sovereign Wealth Funds in the Persian Gulf. By invading Iraq, President George W. Bush grossly undermined American credibility in the international arena and irrevocably weakened Washington’s diplomatic clout. Now what?
Few books of our time are proving to be as prophetic as Chalmers Johnson’s “The Sorrows of Empire,” published in 2004 by Henry Holt & Co. Its description of the impact of the Pentagon’s war machine on our civil liberties and economy today appears largely to be right on the mark.

A decade after the 9/11 attacks, this groundbreaking book by a preeminent reporter takes readers deep into the struggle within the Muslim world where a growing movement defies and challenges extremism and repudiates Osama bin Laden, his deviant doctrine, and his violent disciples.
