    Is America the new world empire? Presidents from Lincoln to Bush may have denied it but, as Niall Ferguson's brilliant and provocative book shows, the US is the greatest military and economic colossus of all time. What's more, it always has been an empire, with its founding fathers battling westwards for territory and their successors spreading freedom across the world - at gunpoint if necessary. Yet is the US really equipped to play Atlas, bearing the weight of the world on its shoulders? America, Ferguson reveals, is now an empire running on empty, backing away from the crucial imperial commitments of time, money and manpower - and resting on perilous financial foundations. When the New Rome falls, its collapse may come from within.

    O avtorju

    -Niall Ferguson-

    NIALL FERGUSON (1964) je večkrat nagrajeni britanski zgodovinar in predavatelj na harvardski univerzi (ob tem sodeluje tudi s prestižnima in uglednima univerzama Oxford in Stanford), ki se je specializiral za področji ekonomske in politične zgodovine. Je avtor štirinajstih strokovnih knjig, ki večinoma posegajo na področje kulturne in ekonomske zgodovine zahodne civilizacije, med drugim Imperij(2003, o vzponu angleškega imperija), Kolos (2004, o vzponu in zatonu Amerike) in Vzpon denarja(2008, o finančni zgodovini sveta). Poleg tega je tudi kolumnist in redni pisec člankov za priznane svetovne časopise in revije, kot sta Time in Newsweek. Po petih njegovih knjigah so bile posnete dokumentarne serije, Civilizacijo, ki je prvi prevod njegovega dela v slovenščino, pa smatrajo za njegovo najboljše delo doslej.
