"In this much-anticipated sequel to his international bestseller Hegemony or Survival, Noam Chomsky turns the tables, charging the United States with being a "failed state," and therefore a danger to its own people and the world. 'Failed states,' Chomsky writes, are those 'that do not protect their citizens from violence and perhaps even destruction, that regard themselves as beyond the reach of domestic or international law, and that suffer from a 'democratic deficit,' having democratic forms but with limited substance."--Inside front cover.

Did US foreign policy really work? One Policy that almost bankrupts the entire nation! Can't say I don't care 'cause the policy affected people globally.
