Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

From Syria and Iraq to Ukraine, from AfPak to Libya, from Iran to Russia, and from the Persian Gulf to China, foreign correspondent Pepe Escobar, author of The Roving Eye column for Asia Times/Hong Kong, crisscrosses what the Pentagon calls the "arc of instability."

As Escobar tells it in the introduction, "the columns selected for this volume follow the period 2009-2014 – the Obama years so far. A continuum with previous volumes published by Nimble Books does apply. Globalistan, from 2007, was an extended reportage/warped travel book across the Bush years, where I argued the world was being plunged into Liquid War – alluding to energy flows but also to the liquid modernity character of post-modern war. Red Zone Blues, also from 2007, was a vignette – an extended reportage centering on the Baghdad surge. And Obama does Globalistan, from 2009, examined how the hyperpower could embark on a “change we can believe in”. The outcome, as these columns arguably reflect, is Empire of Chaos – where a plutocracy progressively projects its own internal disintegration upon the whole world."

"You will find some key overlapping nations/themes/expressions/acronyms in these columns; Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia, China, Russia, Ukraine, Pipelineistan, BRICS, EU, NATO, GCC, the Global South, GWOT (the global war on terror), The New Great Game, Full Spectrum Dominance. You will also find a progressive drift towards not conventional war, but above all economic war – manifestations of Liquid War."

"Incrementally, I have been arguing that Washington's number one objective now is to prevent a full economic integration of Eurasia that would leave the U.S. as a non-hegemon, or worse still, an outsider. Thus the three-pronged strategy of “pivoting to Asia” (containment of China); Ukraine (containment of Russia); and beefing up NATO (subjugation of Europe, and NATO as Global Robocop)."

Book the ultimate trip to the Empire of Chaos, and see how the U.S. - and the West - are tackling the emergence of a multipolar world.

The one and only amazing Pepe Escobar, not as the totally biased Tom Friedman and his cracked Mac Donald theory.

This is a sequence of articles that span roughly the last 5 years and primarily explores the geopolitics of the last 20+ years within the context of current events. Written from an external perspective it is a scathing rebuke of the hypocrisy of U.S. foreign policy: demonstrating the dismantling of the remaining vestiges of American exceptionalism by the U.S. government in the name of American exceptionalism.

From the poetic, to the stylistic, to the academic the articles are written in various styles. Often repetitive it would have been better read in the original medium rather than as a single book. As an observer of current events it is extremely sad that the author was forced to repeat himself so often.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The New Great Game 19 juillet 2015
Par Absinthe - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Escobar makes sense of what is so often baffling about America's foreign policy. Apparent contradictions can be explained by examining them within the context of a New Great Game for hegemony in Eurasia. Competition for control over the flow of energy is what Escobar terms the Liquid War; the theater of war is Pipelineistan.

The US promotes "democracy" by overthrowing elected regimes in military coups. It promotes "women's rights" by replacing secular governments with feudal theocracies. Basic to the hegemonic strategy is driving a wedge between China and Russia, preventing an entente cordiale based upon a mutual desire to escape from domination by American military and financial might. A Brazilian journalist (thus a nominal BRIC), Escobar gives chapter and verse to support his theoretical framework, plus a colorful vocabulary for analyzing the New Great Game. Highly recommended for students of geo-strategies in the Obama era.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 which I also highly recommend. Between Escobar and Katusa 9 mars 2015
Par Robert M. Lemmenes - Publié sur

'Think you've got so much as an inkling of WHAT'S GOING ON in The Middle East? -- Iraq?, Afghanistan?, Syria? Or WHAT'S UP with Iran?, or Ukraine? Or Libya?, Nigeria?, Mali?, even Egypt? HERE is "Alternative Perspective" in each instance, dating to (at least) the inauguration of the Obama Administration. Those who prefer the psychological comfort "crutch" of ignoring evident if not also documented fact over state-directed propaganda (via corporate-controlled mass-media organs) will find herein only further fuel for mindless ignorant hatred. Thinking human beings seeking comprehension and understanding of current on-going "Great States Games" will be as appalled (by what is "hidden") as enlightened (by what is "revealed") within these pages. To the latter, also seek out the online work of Paul Craig Roberts, David Stockman, James Rickards, and Ron Paul (to name but a few actual American Patriots). Personally, I was "clueless" (albeit gravely "uneasy") about a whole host of apparently mis-directed "Foreign"-centric mal-adventures by the USA here, there, everywhere. FAR less so, now! If "ignorance is bliss", DO NOT PROCEED! Otherwise, "connecting-the-dots" is hereby made a whole lot easier -- and clearer... from a what? -- oh, GLOBAL perspective! [To the foregoing "educators", I'd definitely be remiss to not add Marin Katusa, author of The Colder War, which I also highly recommend. Between Escobar and Katusa, you'll achieve your "AH-HAH!" moment -- then proceed to get sorely PO-d, in your own personalized way, over NO-END of (ah) USA "Foreign Policy" stuff. And once you achieve PO, you'll subside into that same sense of What-The-F___!? displaced/disconnected "soul"-wracking DISGUST and REVULSION I'm presently experiencing over what EXACTLY is being actively prosecuted World-Wide by your USA government -- and IN YOUR NAME! This nation has achieved the EXACT OPPOSITE of what our Founding Fathers hoped and envisioned -- and expended their wealth, and bled their lives. GET A CLUE, AMERICA! And this is as good a place to START as any,
