American decline has become a regular topic of conversation among those on the right. But why do nations fail? And what has caused this new despondency about America’s future? Joseph F. Johnston addresses these questions in The Decline of Nations. From immigration to globalization, fading religious faith, centralized power, and economic stagnation, Johnston considers how the present American moment compares to other great moments of decline and fall in history. We invited two reviewers to offer their assessment, and Johnston responds.
