- "Carl Boggs argues that that the U.S.A. began life two centuries ago as a nascent colonialist regime. The Indian wars were followed by perpetual militarism fuelled by a deep sense of national exceptionalism. This book examines how these trends have continued to the present day. Boggs highlights crimes of aggression such as the violation of international agreements, the use of prohibited weapons, military attacks on civilian populations, support for war crimes by proxy, support for death squads and torture to show how technical superiority and media control prolong the American nightmare."--BOOK JACKET.
