"Thoughtful examination of 'ethnoracial' influences on U.S. foreign policy from colonial times onward . . . a timely work." —Kirkus Reviews

This book sheds a disconcerting light on a familiar history, contending that ethnoracial considerations and especially British-American ethnocentrism have often taken priority over morality, ideology, and other factors in determining U.S. foreign policy.
