a must read

This book is a must read for anyone who thinks they know the United States and what we are all about. Well documented, but not your typical history book. Mr. Johnson answers the questions that we typically never ask, and asks questions that force us to reexamine ourselves as a nation. It puts the U.S. as an empire into historical context.
