How to Hide an Empire by Daniel Immerwahr
Recommended by Dan B:
Do you think of the United States as an empire? Why not? This book will change your perception of this country, our overseas territories, and the way we view our history. Learn why the founding father didn’t like Daniel Boone, about America’s longest war before Afghanistan, the origin of the brand name “Sony,” and the impact of race on our territorial acquisitions (huge)! Supremely eye-opening!
