 H-Net Review: John R Moore on The United States and Imperialism
What Ninkovich has done is taken imperialism and placed it in the mainstream of American history by treating it as a recurring theme.
Ninkovich places American imperialism in the context of a "surge in colonialism that washed over the world in the late nineteenth century." He notes that American imperialism was similar to European colonialism, but also that it was more limited in scope and that it ended more quickly.
He sees imperialism "as an element of the geopolitics of modernity." He traces American imperial activities in the Philippines, the Caribbean, and China and relates them to the general sweep of American foreign policy.
