Barbarian Virtues: The United States Encounters Foreign Peoples at Home and Abroad, 1876-1917


How a new American identity was forged by immigration and expansion a century ago.

In Barbarian Virtues, Matthew Frye Jacobson offers a keenly argued and persuasive history of the close relationship between immigration and America's newly expansionist ambitions at the turn of the twentieth century.
