Pretensions to Empire brings together Lewis Lapham's recent political commentaries from his National Magazine Award-winning Harper's Notebook' column, beginning with the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and culminating in Lapham's eloquent (and widely cited) case for the impeachment of George W. Bush. The pieces in this collection provide not only a critical perspective on Bush's presidency - helping us understand what happened and how it happened - but also vital new information and research on the nefarious activities of the Republican's propaganda mill.'
