''Empire 2.0'' is presented as a fictitious letter sent to Debray from an old acquaintance, a French expatriate named Xavier de C
*, who is writing to him from America in October 2001, in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
The essay was first published in France in 2002, as ''L'Edit de caracalla.''
