"The argument of this book springs from a recognition of the hegemony exercised today by the United States in the western world and that of Soviet Russia in the eastern - 'two nations, both with power of imperial proportions...Of these two nations, the one tries desperately not to be an empire, while the other claims not to be, but is in fact a secular reincarnation of the classical quasi-universal empires which existed until the dawn of the modern day.' The author's study leads him to examine the structures of empire in the past, as well as those of the nation-sate, and to examine also the dogmas of American democracy. Dr Niebuhr combines a profound theological and philosophical understanding with a firm grasp of the realities of power politics. His criticism of the assumptions of liberal democracy, and of their applications to the world of today - as instanced by the aims and methods of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt - are of great relevance to the problems of Western Europe. Nations and Empires is a book of capital importance not only for the Christian sociologist, but for everyone concerned with, or seriously interested in, world politics today.", Book in good condition with some wear to the dust jacket and an inscription on the first page.
