ABOUT THE BOOK:
From Mark Twain, to the movement against the war in Vietnam, this is the story of ordinary Americans challenging empire.
All empires spin self-serving myths, and in the U.S. the most potent of these is that America is a force for democracy around the world. Yet there is a tradition of American anti-imperialism which gives the lie to this mythology. Seymour examines this complex relationship from the Revolution to the present-day.
“Seymour’s obsessively researched, impressive first book holds its place as the most authoritative historical analysis of its kind.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
