Product description

Review

"[A] smashing new book… fascinating" (Tim Stanley Daily Telegraph)

"Lively and fascinating … [Immerwahr] is incapable of writing a dull page, and he has a real gift for making striking and unusual connections" (Noel Malcolm Sunday Telegraph)

"To call this standout book a corrective would make it sound earnest and dutiful, when in fact it is wry, readable and often astonishing … It’s a testament to Immerwahr’s considerable storytelling skills that I found myself riveted by his sections on Hoover’s quest for standardized screw threads, wondering what might happen next. But beyond its collection of anecdotes and arcana, this humane book offers something bigger and more profound. How to Hide an Empire nimbly combines breadth and sweep with fine-grained attention to detail. The result is a provocative and absorbing history of the United States ― ‘not as it appears in its fantasies, but as it actually is.’" (New York Times)

"There are many histories of American expansionism. How to Hide an Empire renders them all obsolete. It is brilliantly conceived, utterly original, and immensely entertaining - simultaneously vivid, sardonic and deadly serious." (Andrew J. Bacevich, author of Twilight of the American Century)

"This book changes our understanding of the fundamental character of the United States as a presence in world history. By focusing on the processes by which Americans acquired, controlled, and were affected by territory, Daniel Immerwahr shows that the United States was not just another “empire,” but was a highly distinctive one the dimensions of which have been largely ignored." (David A. Hollinger, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of Protestants Abroad)

Book Description

A fresh, spirited and myth-busting history of the Greater United States and its hidden empire, upending the idea of an anti-imperial America.
