ABOUT THE BOOK:

The Changing Face of Empire is a devastating anatomy of the U.S. military’s new six-point program for twenty-first-century war. Following failures in Iraq and Afghan, as well as “military lite” methods and counterinsurgency, the Pentagon is now pioneering a new brand of global warfare predicated on special ops, drones, spy games, civilian soldiers, cyberwarfare, and proxy fighters.

From the Greater Middle East and Africa to Asia and Latin America, this new American style of warfare is already spreading around the world as secret drone bases expand, proxy armies are trained, and the CIA is further militarized. For the first time, Turse brings to the forefront an emerging way of war that few have noticed, but is sure to be in tomorrow’s headlines.

It may sound like a safer, saner brand of war-fighting – a panacea for America’s national security ills. In reality, it will prove anything but, as Nick Turse’s pathbreaking reportage makes all too clear. It’s a guarantee of global blowback.
