Permanent Counter-Revolution

A non fiction book by

From 9/11 to the rubble of the Middle East, a masterly survey of the increased power of the American Empire from bestselling author Tariq Ali.

We are living in the twilight of democracy. In the 15 years since 9/11, the world has become a place of increasing extremism, intolerance and permanent war. In every instance US imperial ambitions have exacerbated divisions, either with boots on the ground, remote drone strikes or economic manipulations that force open markets for the benefits of vulture capitalism. The Empire thrives on the global disorder, and goes from strength to strength.

In his masterly survey of the present crisis, Tariq Ali looks at the points of conflict: the Middle East - from Israel-Palestine to the rise of ISIS out of the rubble of Iraq and Syria; the failed wars in Afghanistan; the endless aggression between Pakistan and India; the new Cold War in Europe and its fault lines that have shattered Ukraine; the attempts to establish alternative democracies in Latin America.
