The American Empire: To the American mind, these words sound like an oxymoron.Suggesting to Americans that their country has a compelling lust for political, economic and military hegemony over the rest of the world, divorced from any moral considerations, is akin to telling them of one's UFO abduction - except that they're more likely to believe the abduction story.William Blum has compiled evidence that will make believers of such sceptics. In 'Rogue State', he shows that 'close encounters' between the United States and alien nations have demonstrably been of the cruellest kind.

Here's what you say about us...

William Blum is one of the United States' leading non-mainstream experts on American foreign policy. He left the State Department in 1967, abandoning his aspiration of becoming a Foreign Service Officer because of his opposition to what the US was doing in Vietnam. He then became a founder and editor of the Washington Free Press, the first 'alternative' newspaper in the capital. Blum has been a freelance journalist in the US, Europe and South America. He currently sends out a free monthly newsletter, The Anti-Empire Report. To be put on Blum's mailing list, send him an email. Previous issues of the report can be read on his website.email [email protected] williamblum.orgOther books by William BlumKilling Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions since World War IIRogue State: A Guide to the World's Only SuperpowerFreeing the World to Death: Essays on the American EmpireWest-Bloc Dissident: A Cold War Memoir

'This is not a book for anyone who wishes to maintain any cosy illusions about their own liberty - let alone the liberty of anyone in any country to whose domestic policy the United States government takes exception... we find in these pages, meticulously detailed and annotated, all the instances of assassination, covert and overt destabilisation, election-rigging, sponsorship of terrorism, secret surveillance, brainwashing and provocation that the US has employed to further its burgeoning corporate empire (otherwise known as the the 'new world order')... After reading Rogue State, it is impossible to hang fast to the comforting illusion that the 'American Way' is some kind of enlightenment' - Will Self in The New Statesman

'Rogue State is a book of charges to be tied to a paving stone and thrown at the men in Washington' - The Independent on Sunday

'William Blum, once of the US State Department, gives a chilling reminder that while there may be no justification for 11 September, there may be reasons' - Mavis Cheek in The Observer, Books of the Year 2001
