The anthology Weltmacht Europa - Hauptstadt Berlin? was published as part of the "Konkret Texte" series under the heading "imperialism." The choice of title indicates that this collection of texts is part of a debate within the political Left of Germany, and not really a comprehensive handbook in the classical sense. Nevertheless, it draws a clear line against those so-called "anti-imperialist" elements of the German Left which indiscriminately view the U.S. and the EU as evil empires and regard Israel as an imperialist bridgehead, if not the single power calling the shots.
