Delving into the concept ofthe United Statesas an empire, this investigation examines U.S. interventions around the world from the Spanish-American War to the invasion of Iraq demonstratinghow theynot only contradict the principles of both liberals and conservatives but also make a mockery of the Founding Fathers' vision for a free republic. In recent years, "blowback" and the enormous expansion of federal power have threatened the American homeland itself, curtailing the liberties these interventions were supposed to protect. This book, however, exposes the flaws of U.S. interventionism and advocates a return to military restraint.
