How to Hide an Empire: Power and Territory in the Greater United States

Project: Research project

Project Details


The book I am writing, How to Hide an Empire, seeks tell the history of US overseas territories. It offers the first historical overview of the “Greater United States,” not just the compact cluster of contiguous states but all territory under U.S. jurisdiction, including colonies, occupation zones, and military bases. In doing so, it brings the millions of colonized subjects to the forefront of U.S. history.
