American Theocracy by Kevin Phillips

American Theocracy is a sobering examination of the real possibility that the U.S. may be a fading power.

Citing the downfall of great societies in history, author Kevin Phillips argues that, due to our reliance on dwindling oil, unsustainable credit, and the imperious influence of radical religious politics, the U.S. is facing the possibility of its own collapse.

A thick book — both in terms of size and prose style — I don't know that everyone will have the stamina to get through American Theocracy. Still, even for those readers, the points in the text are urgent enough to take notice, even if it's only to read part of the book, tell others about it, or support it in some other way.
