Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book introduces us with the rise and decline of all the well-known empires from Britain to the Soviet union. The author compares the situations of every single empire and its decline or fall with the situation in the US as we know it. Worthy buying for everyone interested in this field of political science or history.
