Providing the most penetrating analysis, to date, of filibustering's ramifications for U. This book, in engaging prose richly informed by theory but refreshingly free of jargon, makes use of a treasure of source material, especially travel accounts and magazine pieces and convincingly illuminates hitherto unexplored connections between filibustering abroad and urban life at home, while also connecting U.
This is an insightful and provocative take on nineteenth-century American aggression overseas that has implications for the nation's modern plight abroad.
I have taken three of her courses and enjoyed pretty much all her lectures. She could probably make a course on garbage disposal worthwhile. I would actually take that course.

I always leave our Thursday meetings excited and feeling good and actually feeling like I've learned something. I really loved this class, I actually wanted to do the readings at least most of them! She really knows her stuff and cares if students learn. I didn't think a course on the early American republic could be so interesting and make me think about the present in different way.

The US-Mexico War brought two centuries of dramatic territorial expansionism to a close, seemingly fulfilling America's Manifest destiny. As politicians schemed to annex new lands in Latin America and the Pacific, some Americans took expansionism into their own hands. From , an epidemic of unsanctioned attacks by American mercenaries filibusters took place.
This book documents the potency of Manifest destiny in the antebellum era, and situates imperial lust in the context of social and economic transformations that were changing the meaning of manhood and womanhood in the US. Easy victory over Mexico in led many American men to embrace both an aggressive vision of expansionism and an equally martial vision of manhood. Debates about the propriety of aggression abroad polarized the public at home, shaping antebellum Presidential elections, foreign policies, gender relations, and ultimately the failure of sectional compromise before the Civil War.
