Murder Incorporated - Dreaming of Empire: Book One (Empire, Genocide, and Manifest Destiny) by Mumia Abu-Jamal, Stephen Vittoria
The prevailing myth is that America’s prized possessions and greatest exports are democracy and the dream of freedom. The naked truth, according to Abu-Jamal and Vittoria, is that the American dream is illusory and America’s greatest export is in fact murder – and that along the way to the kill, America thieves, suppresses, and tyrannizes. This book strives to set the record straight, to educate, to enlighten and to enliven the people against the corruptions of empire—corruptions that stretch from Columbus’s first steps on Hispaniola through yesterday’s murderous drone attack. More than a history book, this is a lively, irreverent, and spirited alternative to the orthodoxy of American exceptionalism.
