"Today the United States is an economic and cultural giant, with a military to match. Each year, the United States military conducts operations in dozens of countries. In this film Robert D. Kaplan explores how in 2007 America is now effectively an empire. As a reporter for the Atlantic Monthly and author of eleven books he’s seen this empire develop first hand.
Traveling with units of the American military, Kaplan presents an insider’s view of America’s on-going war against terrorism. The military people he meets during his journeys are characters in the middle of a story that goes back centuries. "Who are they, what are they doing, and how does it fit into world history?" are the questions this film pursues. In answering these questions, Kaplan brings a perspective that is simultaneously micro in its detail and macro in its sweep and overview."
