Product Description: This book explores the limits of institutional knowledge. What does an empire know and how does it know it? How does its own culture, general or bureaucratic, shape the information it receives and its ability to "process" information. Army Foreign Area Officer Maj. Patrick Kelley takes us through historical and cultural terrain never before traveled in a virtuoso exercise of cross-disciplinary analysis that is as much fun as it is thought provoking. Not since Spengler or Voegelin tackled civilization dynamics has empire been subject to such original and erudite treatment on such a grand scale. Imperial Secrets is sui generis and Kelley has invented a new field: imperial informatics. Policymakers would do well to read and ponder this book before taking their next major decision.
