The Dominion of War: 6liberty and Empire in North America, 1500-2000

by Fred Anderson, Andrew Cayton

About this title: Through a close study of several major and lesser-known wars fought in North America, two distinguished historians trace the growth of America and the changes wrought by these conflicts. Each war is studied through the prism of a key general--Washington, Jackson, Grant, MacArthur, etc.--and together they reveal a pattern of imperialistic enterprise throughout American history. In their introduction, Fred Anderson and Andrew Cayton state that their book is a study in power, and their in-depth chapters build a case for these wars as formative to America's values, and also as crucibles for debates on America's role in the world. They show how wars helped compose our national narrative and shape our self-image. This book on wars is a book on war, showing that while coercion and conflict have great power for change, they also have consequences--good and bad, both immediate and historical.
