Description
 

Following the publication of Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace and its sequel Dreaming War, Gore Vidal was described as the last noble defender of the American republic, Americas last small-r republican. In Imperial America, the conclusion of this landmark trilogy and his most devastating exploration of contemporary America yet, Vidal observes that theres something suspicious about the ever reckless Cheney-Bush junta. They have created the Department of Homeland Security, the USA PATRIOT Act, and embarked upon a series of wars in pursuit of the worlds oil reserves -- to the extent that they seem not to care about the decent opinion of mankind. Bushs apparent invincibility, and what he might or might now know -- especially about those new black box voting machines being installed all over the country which seem to swing votes to the Republicans -- is one of the central themes of Imperial Americas opening essay, a mordant, magnificent, and witty State of the Union for the election year (and beyond).
