'Imperial Overstretch is a sweeping view of the history of US empire, the economic and military underpinnings of this empire, and the rise of the petro-military complex under the Bush administration. It is essential reading for those wishing to understand the rise of the neo-cons, the political birthing of George Bush and the imperial hijacking of September 11.'
Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Global Exchange and the women's peace group CodePink
'A brilliant expose of savage greed and imperial hubris masquerading as the United States of America.'
Mike Davis, University of California at Irvine
'Roger Burbach and Jim Tarbell provide us with indispensable insights into why, for all its bluster and armed might, the American empire has feet of clay. Provocative and comprehensive, this book is must reading for the global resistance movement.'
