"The True Flag" recounts the history of Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of the American Empire. Author Stephen Kinzer recounts:
"At the dawn of the twentieth century, the U.S. first found itself with the chance to dominate faraway lands. That prospect thrilled some Americans. It horrified others. America's most eminent figures took sides. Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Cabot Lodge, and William Randolph Hearst pushed for imperial expansion; Mark Twain, Booker T. Washington and Andrew Carnegie preached restraint. Their debate gripped the nation.
Every argument over America's role in the world grows from this one. It all starts here.
