Review:
This book is very hard on the USA. Its case against the present policies of the USA must therefore be well argued and based on fact rather than emotion and / or prejudice. Whether the author has proved his case, or cases since there is much here that concerns the global environment as well as more national issues, is problematic. The majority of readers may well subscribe to views expressed here about climate change, but a significant minority will not. The same is true of the network of ideas expressed here about 'American Imperialism'. The minority will claim: 'case not proven'. If there are to be theological outcomes to this debate - Authentic Hope, for example, then there needs to be less polemic and more irenic.
