really liked it
bookshelves: history-us

Basic premise (cf. conventional denial or condemnation of American Empire) is that yes, we are in fact an empire, but that this is not necessarily a bad thing. Ferguson prescribes acceptance followed by constructive action in light of historical precedent to ensure the success of America in the coming decades.
