Yet this book argues that such a distinction, so obviously impracticable in our own global era, has been illusory at least since the war with Mexico in the mid-19th century and the later wars against Spain, Cuba and the Philippines.

In this book, Amy Kaplan shows how US imperialism - from Manifest Destiny to the American Century - has profoundly shaped key elements of American culture at home, and how the struggle for power over foreign peoples and places has disrupted the quest for domestic order.
