Interview with the American writer and broadcaster Jim Tarbell about his book 'Imperial Overstretch.'

Jim Tarbell wrote together with the historian Roger Burbach the book 'Imperial Overstretch. George W. Bush and the hubris of empire.' Tarbell is a writer and broadcaster based in Northern California.

In 1987 the Bitish historian Paul Kennedy showed in his book 'The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers'  that one can speak of imperial overstretch the moment the empire costs more than it produces. I started the interview by asking Jim the question how he defines imperial overstretch.
