Auteur: Seymour, Richard
Titel: American Insurgents
Sub titel: A Brief History of American Anti-Imperialism
All empires spin self-serving myths, and in the United States 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 that gives the lie to this mythology. American Insurgents is a surprising, revelatory history of anti-imperialism in the United States since the American Revolution. It charts the movements against empire from the Indian Wars and the expansionism of the slave South to the Anti-Imperialist League of Mark Twain and Jane Addams. Richard Seymour crafts a lively and transparent explanation of why some of these movement succeeded and others failed. The result is a vital perspective for those organizing antiwar resistance today.
