New pamphlet: America Right or Wrong

Issue No. 2159

This new pamphlet looks at the “special relationship” between the US and Britain, which has defined the imperialist order over the last 50 years.

After the decline of the British Empire, Britain’s rulers hitched themselves to the new superpower, the US, in an attempt to keep a dominant role in the world.

Both Conservative and Labour governments have accepted the postion as “junior partner”.

New Labour’s support for George Bush and the “war on terror” is not an aberration, but an integral part of a party that is committed to imperialism.

This pamphlet also analyses what we can expect from Barack Obama’s new administration.
