It is not necessary to read the first two titles mentioned here to enjoy Globocop, but it helps to put it in context. Globocop is itself a fantastic historical work, but I also highly recommend his other works when you finish this one. Keep em coming Mr. The author does not seem to have gotten much attention as a historian, but I have found this and his other books to be gems, very enjoyable reads. He takes you on a journey that is easy to follow, with commentary some might disagree with, but still very clear.
Globocop: How America Sold its Soul and Lost its Way (Electronic book text)
I have found this book to have more influence on my thinking of where our country is, and precisely when and where we changed from our first years thus losing our soul. Once you see the change starting with Teddy Roosevelt and the following years to present, it all comes together, at least for me. The book has views and conclusions our country needs to debate. We have so many who feel our country needs to be protected, spend ungodly sums of money on the military when our risk of "attack" is not only remote, but with minimal consequences; the scenario where we lose our freedoms to another country seems less than remote.
From this book you get a sense that once you get powerful and have the ability to act like an empire, it is inevitable that one of the presidents is eventually going to use that power with devastating consequences to our economy.
Globocop: How America Sold Its Soul and Lost Its Way by Mark David Ledbetter
Seems how we approached Libya in late is an example of not being tempted to use that power to the full extent just because we have it, and it ended far better than the approach we used in Iraq for example. I would recommend this author and his other books to those who want to understand where our country is today and how it came to be, plus very reasonably priced. Added comment after another read: Ron Paul would love this book, and in reading it, I am finding myself moving in that direction.
What impacts me is not so much whether we as a country should or should not be pursuing our interests in other parts of the world though I am impacted by his views , the real issue is, even if it were the right thing to do, we are ineffective at doing it, so why bother.

This books is a history lesson to show why democracies will fail in our policing efforts i. My gut tells me our country believes the hype and dangerous over-simplifications of "our" politicians because we do not know history. History is well presented in this author's book s.
Another thought I have from reading this book: We deserve what we are getting because of 1 who we elected, and 2 our ignorance as a composite society, our Society IQ is on a great day at room temperature. I see no reason for optimism other than hope the next generation will learn How Not To Do It from the present generations.

America once understood and followed Washington's Great Rule and J. Adams' admonition not to go out into the world in search of monsters to destroy. America was then the light of freedom, not the sword. Now it has picked up the sword only to see the light grow dimmer year by year.

This book looks at the progression from republic protected by militia to empire protected by standing armies in Athens and Rome - and the similar progression in America. It looks at an alternative: The Swiss way, which has kept Switzerland free and republican for years in the center of a warlike continent. America once understood and followed Washington's Great Rule and J. Adams' admonition not to go out into the world in search of monsters to destroy. America was then the light of freedom, not the sword.
