A Brief History of American Anti-Imperialism

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

RICHARD SEYMOUR is a socialist writer and columnist and runs the blog Lenin's Tomb. He is the author of The Liberal Defense of Murder and The Meaning of David Cameron.
