Murder Incorporated: Empire, Genocide and Manifest Destiny is a searing critique of the American Empire, a diagnosis of a corrupt pathology.
The myth is that America’s prized possessions and greatest exports are democracy and the dream of freedom. The reality, say Abu-Jamal and Vittoria, is that the American dream is illusory, and America’s greatest export is murder—and that along the way to the kill, it thieves, suppresses, and tyrannizes.
Murder Incorporated strives to set the record straight: to educate, to enlighten and enliven the people against the corruptions of empire—corruptions that stretch from Columbus’s first steps on Hispaniola through yesterday’s murderous drone attack. More than a history book, Murder Incorporated is a lively, irreverent, and spirited alternative to the orthodoxy of American exceptionalism.
