They are liberals in opposition to democracy, as they are liberals in opposition to conservatism. This is historically true of Americans, however the politically shrewd, and politically ignorant, employment of "conservative," "liberal," and "democratic" vaporizes these terms beyond recognition and coherence. Yet only by facing its controlling truths will political America begin to discover a rationality which now eludes-to perceive as prelude to reasonable action.

Talk about The Collapse of Liberal Empire: Science and Revolution in the Twentieth Century (Chandler Sharp Publications in Political Science)

"The Collapse of Liberal Empire" captures the internal logic of American thought and debate more deeply than any work of political science I have read, explaining why Americans seem feeble even when they are most furious at their own political system. This is a passed-over classic of American political science.

"Confusing liberalism with democracy, separating politics from economics and technology, Americans fail to come to grips with a reality they cannot and, indeed, refuse to understand," Goldstene wrote in 1977. "The failure to do so produces a systemic anguish and confusion, within which the world appears in flux, cut loose from its ideological moorings, where established expectations are scattered by forces beyond control...an order wherein no one appears to know what anyone else is talking about."

Goldstene's forceful, empirical style serves speculative arguments that explain and challenge American liberal conceptions of elitism, pluralism, scarcity and power. He argues that the U.S. Constitution -- "a liberal masterpiece" -- is less a child of Locke than of Newton, and describes how this mechanistic ideology creates confusion and inner conflict among liberals in a post-Newtonian world. "The crisis of liberalism is a crisis of perception," Goldstene writes. Liberals obsessively fear power and the tradition of attempting to place "checks and balances" on power is as deeply conditioned as it is outmoded. Goldstene reminds us that "power that can restrain power is inherently a part of the power it checks, because all power is a part of itself." Confronted with the the failure of countervailing power against corporate power, today's liberals can only remark that it is "scary."

"Suspicion grows that the great liberal guarantee of rights, the division of the social universe into the realms of the political, the economic, and the personal, is now evaporated into a bureaucratic leviathan -- a suspicion which renders rational the confusing spectacle of a liberal people in angry reaction against the institutions of their own order," writes Goldstene.

Americans are rarely educated about their own political tradition in a meaningful way, even as we promote it to the rest of the world. I think many readers will share the reaction of the reviewer quoted on the book cover, as I did: "Lately I have read a book that has made me see in a new light the way I have been forming opinions during my life." As engaging as Goldstene's excavation of the liberal tradition is, it exists to support an unusual thesis on the conflict between science and technology, or more specifically the corporate drive for technological expansion against the foundation of new technology, science.

"Science is committed to investigation and discovery, technology to application and technique, and the friction between them dominates the politics of the age." This friction -- not abortion or gun rights -- is the latter day Civil War of American liberalism, played out largely as a quiet struggle over corporate policy. Liberals wrongly perceive science as a force inherent only to the ruling stratum. "Scientific theory is the foundation of modern world. It can be destroyed as an autonomous force only if the technological mentality wants to endure the collapse of its own system."

"The Collapse of Liberal Empire" has dated little in the 33 years since its first publication. Technological acceleration and new imperial adventures in the Middle East only make the discussion more timely. Readers flocking to Chomsky or continental theory may find Goldstene's critique of American politics far more lucid and penetrating.

Goldsteine elequently describes the differences between the liberal dilemas we all face today. After all, as Goldsteine argues, we are all liberals. What makes us liberal and what is the connection to our past...This book is doomed to become a classic and may even come true to life.
