The Dominion of War Summary


The Dominion of War: Empire & Conflict in America, 1500-2000 by Andrew Clayton

This book defines war, rather than liberty, as the primary means by which the peoples of North America have defined social, cultural, and political boundaries for the last half-millennium. From the Seven Years' War, to the ambivalent response to the First World War, through to involvement in the Second World War, Vietnam and Iraq, this book traces the birth and evolution of a militaristic nation. The Dominion of War is a landmark account of how republic and empire have coexisted in history as two faces of the same coin. It is sure to contribute to the debate on the imperialist ambitions of America's foreign policy in the twenty-first century.

The Dominion of War Reviews


"'Vivid and memorable... Anderson carries his mastery of a vast scholarly literature lightly...eventful and fast-paced yet always clear. His exposition of cultural conflicts, strategy, politics and diplomacy is lucid...This book will be read Oby many people and will be in print for a long, long time.' New York Times; 'Reading Crucible of War is an enriching experience...Anderson meets the enormous challenge he has set for himself.' Wall Street Journal"
