This book forever changed what I thought I knew about the history of US Foreign Policy. It was the beginning of learning the true history of US that is rarely taught outside of college. It made me angry to realize that what I had learned in High School was a very glossed over and romanticized American history. All the many arguments I have had with Foreigners on the topic and it turns out I was ill-informed and they were right.

Excellent resource! Using this as a reference for a university history essay on US foreign policy during the period of the late 19th Century through to 1914.
