"The notion that imperial rule is for the benefit of its subjects 'was and always will be a cynical and hypocritical canard. . . . Empire has never been more than naked self-interest masquerading as virtue.'" Charles S. Maier, review essay, "Empire Without End", quoting "The Rule of Empires: Those Who Built Them, Those Who Endured Them, and Why They Always Fall", by Timothy Parsons, Oxford University Press, 2010.
