 From the front page of the New York Times Sunday Book Review:

“We cannot,” she [Suzy Hansen] writes, “go abroad as Americans in the 21st century and not realize that the main thing that has been terrorizing us … is our own ignorance — our blindness and subsequent discovery of all the people on whom the empire-that-was-not-an-empire had been constructed without our attention or concern.”

"She [the author] traces the ways in which “Americans were in active denial of their empire even as they laid its foundations.” She is interested in and does well to expose the machinery — the propaganda, the economic authoritarianism, the military might, the manipulative diplomacy, the myriad aid agencies and NGOs — that made this possible."
