From Hiroshima survivors to Nazi doctors, from Vietnam veterans to the cult that sarin-gassed the Tokyo subways, he has explained to us global apocalyptic urges, the ravages of psychic numbness, and the psychology of the survivor. Now, as al- Qaedas desire to purify the earth of evil meets the unilateral urge to dominate the globes sole superpower, Lifton believes we have arrived at a remarkably perilous moment.

The United States-from its leaders to much of its people-feels itself painfully vulnerable and thinks of itself as a survivor nation. The combination of such feelings roiling through the land over the last year and an administration with unprecedented military power bent on dominating and purifying the earth adds up to an intensely dangerous atmosphere-in fact, a syndrome. Unfortunately, there is no therapy available for empires-or rather, the only therapy available is self-prescribed. But while Lifton cant be therapist to the earths last superpower, he can bring together a half century of wisdom and apply it to Superpower Syndrome.
