Narrator Arthur Morey's voice has a ring of knowledgeable world-weariness as he provides listeners a history of U.S. hegemony. The titular American Century refers to that period of increasing U.S. influence, starting in the 1940s. This audiobook is McCoy's requiem to America's standing, an in-depth overview of U.S. strengths giving way to failed international policies from the fall of Saigon and the end of the Cold War to the war in Afghanistan and the Arab Spring. Delving deeply into our military infrastructure in land, sea, space, and cyberspace, Morey relates McCoy's critical assessments with equal clarity and intelligence, taking listeners through U.S. strengths (e.g., the development of technology) and its policy failures (e.g., the enforcement of torture). Harrowing but important listening. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
