Morris Berman, "Why America Failed: The Roots of Imperial Decline"

Last edited Mon Feb 27, 2012, 03:12 PM - Edit history (1)

It's a pretty blunt and none-too-hopeful assessment, but well worth a watch if you didn't see it on BookTV this weekend.

Morris Berman talks about the third book in his trilogy on the decline of the American empire. Mr. Berman argues that self-interest trumping the common good has led the U.S. astray. This event was hosted by Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Los Angeles.

1. Just picked up his "Dark Ages America"

and it's next in my reading queue. Interesting chap, and most insightful.

4. Can't imagine self-interest trumping the common good in a country where

RW interests have largely controlled the public agenda for decades.
