All empires spin self-serving myths, and in the United States the most potent of these is that America is a force for democracy around the world. Yet there is a tradition of American anti-imperialism that gives the lie to this mythology. Join Richard Seymour, author of the newly-published American Insurgents: Brief History of American Anti-Imperialism and The Liberal Defense of Murder, now out in paperback, as he examines this complex relationship from the American Revolution to the present-day.
