The True Flag
The True Flag Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire By Kinzer, Stephen Book - 2017

This book is a must read for anyone trying to understand US foreign policy, as it examines the thought processes of the major players who tilted the scales in favor of world dominance over world peacekeeping. It is simply stunning, especially in today's environment in which racism is still a major issue, to read the racist views of major US politicians in the late 1890's. It seems, when the US came to the crossroads, it chose to take the path that has led us, not to become true world leaders, but false peacekeepers. US hubris has failed to create a truly better world.
