ALL EMPIRES SPIN self-serving myths, and in the United States the most
potent of these is that America is a force for democracy around the
world. Yet there is a tradition of American anti-imperialism that gives the lie to this mythology. Richard Seymour examines this complex relationship from the American Revolution to the present-day.
“In these times of international rebellion, [Richard Seymour] has given
us a tool with which to build a movement for a more just world, both
within and beyond our borders.” —Camilo Mejía, author, Road to ar-Ramadi
“In the tradition of Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United
States Richard Seymour shows that US imperialism has generated
significant domestic opposition rooted in grassroots movements for
racial, economic, and social justice.” —Michael Letwin, founding member, New York City Labor Against the War and Labor for Palestine
