Escobar makes sense of what is so often baffling about America's foreign policy. Apparent contradictions can be explained by examining them within the context of a New Great Game for hegemony in Eurasia. Competition for control over the flow of energy is what Escobar terms the Liquid War; the theater of war is Pipelineistan.

The US promotes "democracy" by overthrowing elected regimes in military coups. It promotes "women's rights" by replacing secular governments with feudal theocracies. Basic to the hegemonic strategy is driving a wedge between China and Russia, preventing an entente cordiale based upon a mutual desire to escape from domination by American military and financial might. A Brazilian journalist (thus a nominal BRIC), Escobar gives chapter and verse to support his theoretical framework, plus a colorful vocabulary for analyzing the New Great Game. Highly recommended for students of geo-strategies in the Obama era.

Speed to market makes the material highly topical, and the last column is dated only three months ago - but an extraordinarily ugly layout is offputting to this reader, and the unnecessarily wide spacing makes it a very hefty tome. A compact paperback would have been easier to handle, and more likely to find a permanent place on the shelf. Pepe Escobar's columns provide fresh perspective when published on the internet; more careful handling (and ideally some editing) would be worthwhile to achieve wider readership in print.

An incoherent mishmash of propaganda from the hate America first crowd. the author needs to quit beating a dead horse.
