A startling image of danger and instability emerges as On Empire sketches the tangled relationship between globalization, war, and the prospects for peace in a world that has witnessed uninterrupted military conflict since 1914.It is against this somber backdrop that Hobsbawm offers his views about why America will never achieve the dominance of past empires—despite the overwhelming preponderance of U.S.

military power in the world. And in a powerful series of historical observations about the war in Iraq, Hobsbawm dismantles every major assumption underlying American military strategy, demonstrating the utter futility of U.S.

hopes for “victory” in the Middle East.Good grounds for heated discussion about America’s role in the world (Kirkus Reviews), On Empire is a brilliant new intellectual volley from “our greatest living historian” (The New York Review of Books).
