In Pacific Connections, Kornel Chang tells the dramatic stories of the laborers, merchants, smugglers, and activists who crossed these borders into the twentieth century, and the American and British empire-builders who countered them by hardening racial and national lines. But even as settler societies attempted to control the processes of imperial integration, their project fractured under its contradictions. Migrant workers and radical activists pursued a transnational politics through the very networks that made empire possible. Charting the U.S.-Canadian borderlands from above and below, Chang reveals the messiness of imperial formation and the struggles it spawned from multiple locations and through different actors across the Pacific world.

Only slight wear ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; 9.29 X 6.54 X 1.97 inches; 5827 pages; From the DJ flap: "In this ground-breaking book Kagan sets the historical record straight and explodes some of the most powerful - and enduring - myths about America's attitude to the rest of the world. In the process Kagan reveals an America that is as ambitious as it is expansionist." Most Americans believe the United States had been an isolationist power until the twentieth century. This is wrong. In a riveting and brilliantly revisionist work of history, Robert Kagan, bestselling author of Of Paradise and Power, shows how Americans have in fact steadily been increasing their global power and influence from the beginning. Driven by commercial, territorial, and idealistic ambitions, the United States has always perceived itself, and been seen by other nations, as an international force. This is a book of great importance to our understanding of our nationís history and its role in the global community.
