America's Imperial Burden: Is the Past Prologue?

Synopsis

Where does America's role in the world begin & end? What are our responsibilities to ourselves & other nations? How has America's relationship to other nations changed over the course of the twentieth century? According to Ernest Lefever, one of America's most well-regarded conservatives, "America has a responsibility commensurate with its capacity to influence the outside world. This is the imperial burden." In this book, Lefever addresses those who see the United States in moral crisis within its own borders & believe, therefore, that the nation's ability to remain an imperial world power is jeopardized. He also confronts those who believe America is suffering from "imperial over-stretch." Lefever presents these conflicting views & offers his perspective, one based primarily on his Judeo-Christian moral ethics, which developed over decades of experience & study.
