I always liked that title. "The Sorrows of Empire," sans "the," changes the meaning; it becomes about the sorrows of imperialism as a system rather than about the Terran Empire itself as a particular entity.
I borrowed it from a nonfiction political tome by Chalmers Johnson, which is itself worth a read when one has time.
