Over the course of the last century, the US has silently encircled the world with a web of military bases unlike any other in history. Today, they amount to more than 700, in at least 100 countries. No continent is spared.
What role do the bases play in maintaining US hegemony in the world?
We will answer these and other crucial questions both through the words of prominent intellectuals like: Noam Chomsky, Gore Vidal, Chalmers Johnson and others – and through the shocking but often inspiring stories of those directly affected by US bases: the citizens of Vicenza; the Diego Garcia islanders, the many Japanese of Okinawa; the various grassroots movements in Europe and Asia struggling for a base-free world; as well as those living inside the bases: the men and women who are often sent to faraway lands with little or no preparation for what they’ll find there.
