Praise For Dangerous Nation: America's Foreign Policy from Its Earliest Days to the Dawn of the Twentieth Century…
“Brilliant and original. . . . A tour de force of historical writing that should change the way many people view the country's past. . . a landmark.” —Foreign Affairs“The most important reassessment of early United States foreign policy to appear in over half a century. Compellingly written and provocatively argued, it goes far toward explaining -- to the world but also to ourselves -- who we Americans are today, and where we may be going.” —John Lewis Gaddis, author of The Cold War“A first-rate work of history, based on prodigious reading and enlivened by a powerful prose style. . . . Helps bring long-dead diplomatic history to life.”—The Economist“Provocative and deeply absorbing. . . . [Kagan] shows how America was always a player, and often a ruthless one, in the great game of nations.”—The New York Times Book Review
