What are the characteristics of Empires? What dangers lurk within an imperial organisation? And what opportunities does it offer? Suddenly these questions are no longer just of historical interest. The USA has taken become the pole power, which many people see as threatening. Do the politicians in Washington decide the rules for the rest of the world to follow? Or is there an internal logic of world domination, which even they must follow? Herfried Münkler shows how an empire works and which types of empires existed in the past. A masterful walk through history and also a brilliant analysis of a very current topic.Imperien. Die Logik der Weltherrschaft - vom Alten Rom bis zu den Vereinigten Staaten [Empires.
