 Harvard University Press: Empire by Michael Hardt
Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fundamentally different from the imperialism of European dominance and capitalist expansion in previous eras.
Empire identifies a radical shift in concepts that form the philosophical basis of modern politics, concepts such as sovereignty, nation, and people.

  Filmtracks: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (John Williams)
When discussing themes in The Empire Strikes Back, it's hard not to become fixated on the "Imperial March," the theme devised by Williams to represent the Galactic Empire as a whole and Lord Vader on a personal level.
When you saw The Empire Strikes Back for the first time, you got the feeling that damn near everything was going wrong --as it should be-- and part of that feeling was the ambience of a relentless uphill struggle created by Williams' score.
Overall, owning The Empire Strikes Back is just as important as owning the other entries in the classic trilogy, and with its outstanding packaging and complete presentation of music, the 1997 special edition album (the original full version bound in fl booklets) continues to be the best The Empire Strikes Back product available.

The overseas British Empire (in the sense of British oceanic exploration and settlement outside of Europe and the British Isles) was rooted in the pioneering maritime policies of King Henry VII, who reigned from 1485 to 1509.
The empire thus took shape during the early 17th century, with the English settlement of the eastern colonies of North America, which would later become the original United States as well as Canada's Atlantic provinces, and the colonisation of the smaller islands of the Caribbean such as Jamaica and Barbados.

Empire is not born of its own will but rather it is called into being and constituted on the basis of its capacity to resolve conflicts.
Empire is emerging today as the center that supports the globalization of productive networks and casts its widely inclusive net to try to envelop all power relations within its world order-and yet at the same time it deploys a powerful police function against the new barbarians and the rebellious slaves who threaten its order.
Empire thus appears in the form of a very high tech machine: it is virtual, built to control the marginal event, and organized to dominate and when necessary intervene in the breakdowns of the system (in line with the most advanced technologies of robotic production).

Lynch's movies are notoriously plot deficient, and never more so than "Inland Empire," which has something to do with an actress, played by Laura Dern, who is cast in a remake of a Polish movie that was shut down after its lead actors mysteriously expired.
