Colonial Crucible: Empire In The Making Of The Modern American State
|Author||Alfred W. McCoy|
|Francisco A. Scarano|
|Dimension||6 x 9|
After 1898 the United States conquered an island empire stretching halfway round the globe, from Puerto Rico to the Philippines. Plunging Washington’s raw bureaucracy into the white heat of nationalist revolution and imperial rivalry, colonialism was a Promethean crucible that transformed the American state. This volume, bringing together fifty scholars from four continents, explores empire’s impact on U.S. state formation— policing and prisons, education, race, public health, the military, and environmental management.
