In a riveting and brilliantly revisionist work of history, Robert Kagan, bestselling author ofOf Paradise and Power,shows how Americans have in fact steadily been increasing their global power and influence from the beginning. Driven by commercial, territorial, and idealistic ambitions, the United States has always perceived itself, and been seen by other nations, as an international force.
