Summary

"This superb collection of essays provides a necessary background for the stories that jump off today's front pages--a supposedly wondrous American 'empire, ' the hidden dilemmas of nation-building, drug-trafficking, colliding cultures, and a touching faith in American exceptionalism. As analyzed by some of our best younger scholars, we can now see clearly--and learn from--what happened to that earlier generation who set out to make the United States an imperial power."--Walter LaFeber, Cornell University
