From Mark Twain to the movement against the war in Vietnam, this is the story of ordinary Americans challenging empire. Author Richard Seymour alleges that all empires spin self-serving myths and in the US the most potent of these is that America is a force for democracy around the world. Yet, as he goes on to illustrate, there is a tradition of American anti-imperialism which gives the lie to this mythology. Seymour examines this complex relationship from the American Revolution to the present-day.
