"Frank Ninkovich's "The United States and Imperialism" is a major work of historical research and writing. Ninkovich takes on several of the most important topics in the history of US foreign relations with grace, wit, and deep understanding. The book includes a vast amount of scholarship in primary and secondary sources. Best of all, it brings centuries' old issues up to date." "Robert D. Schulzinger, University of Colorado"
"In this provocative overview, Frank Ninkovich reconceptualizes American imperialism 'as an element of the geopolitics of modernity.' By emphasizing the liberal sensibility and modernizing goals behind imperialism, he reorients stale debates and poses fresh questions about America's identity and 'civilizing' mission." "Emily Rosenberg, Macalester College"
"Ninkovich provides an innovative and exciting synthesis." "Choice"
"""Ninkovich presents a fresh interpretation of the contours of the American empire and places the experience of imperialismVom Verlag:
The United States and Imperialism uses concepts of civilization, identity, the civilizing mission, and cooperation to explain the role of imperialism in American history. The book begins with a survey of the methods and reasons behind America's imperialist drive in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and then outlines the place of imperialism within the broader sweep of modern United States foreign policy. Ninkovich's original analysis of America as an empire shows that imperialism, anti-imperialism, and geopolitics have all played a role in how the United States made decisions about acquiring new territories.
