Abstract

Toward the end of his history of the domestic conflict over U.S. overseas expansion at the close of the nineteenth century, Stephen Kinzer notes that the winners permanently changed our political lexicon. "Imperialists" became openhearted, visionary "globalists" and "internationalists." Anti-imperialists became crabby, reactionary "isolationists." As applied to the United States, the words "empire" and "imperialism" virtually disappeared.
