American Exception: Empire and the Deep State
American Exception: Empire and the Deep State is a 2022 book by political scientist Aaron Good that "seeks to explain the breakdown of US democracy" from a "deep politics approach". The book documents the history, especially in the Cold War era, of the American deep state, which has "increasingly dominated [...] the open democratic state and the authoritarian security state." These interventions include "toppling of foreign governments, the launching of aggressive wars, and the political assassinations of the 1960s", such as those of JFK and Martin Luther King, Jr.
