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
