Military historian Alexander's survey of more than two centuries of America's interactions with the world rejects the notion of the U.S. as an imperial power. Although he acknowledges major mistakes (slavery, Vietnam), Alexander asserts that America has never sought to conquer foreign peoples. Americans, Alexander argues, have viewed themselves as an island nation protected by vast oceans that allowed them to develop their democratic institutions while avoiding the chronic warfare experienced by European states. In the twentieth century, that benign isolation was no longer tenable. Thus, America reluctantly became a world power, but with the primary goal of protecting its own liberty.
