ABSTRACT. Smith writes that whereas the geographical language of empires suggests a malleable politics, the "American Century" suggests an inevitable destiny. Eland shows that imperial behavior by one power can lead to counterbalancing by other powers. Felker argues that we need to study how to degrade and destroy our adversaries' abilities to transmit their military, political, and economic goods, services and information. Gagné maintains that after the Second World War, decisions made at Yalta and Potsdam were to modify the structure and dynamics of international relations in a very significant way.
