"Lutz makes a real contribution to the study of the American empire of bases."

"These fascinating case studies provide a powerful assessment of the worldwide network of U.S. military bases and the burgeoning anti-base campaign, and analyze the changing nature of empire building and the re-mapping of the sociopolitical terrain within the context of the 'global war on terror.' A major contribution to understanding the causes and consequences of U.S. military bases at home and abroad."
-—Kimberly Theidon,Harvard University
"A real contribution to the study of the American empire of bases. . . This book is an antidote to parochialsim."-Truthdig,
“The authors, primarily anthropologists, have written a series of essays demonstrating the ills of American military bases in various parts of the world, especially Latin America, the Middle East, and the Pacific Basin. Much of what they have written is accurate. American military bases and forces deployed overseas very often have been sources of insecurity and problems rather than promoting democracy, economic development, and stability.”
-Hal M. Friedman,Henry Ford Community College
“This book contains a powerful set of ideas and well referenced information to help inform the world of the reality of U.S. militarization of the global community.”
