Review:

"Herring recaptures a quarter-millennium of American foreign policy with fluidity and felicity...we have long been waiting for a single-volume history like this one." New York Times Book Review

From the Publisher:

A finalist for the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction, this prize-winning and critically acclaimed history uses foreign relations as the lens through which to tell the story of America's dramatic rise from thirteen disparate colonies huddled along the Atlantic coast to the world's greatest superpower.
George C. Herring tells a story of stunning successes and sometimes tragic failures, captured in a fast-paced narrative that illuminates the central importance of foreign relations to the existence and survival of the nation, and highlights its ongoing impact on the lives of ordinary citizens. He shows how policymakers defined American interests broadly to include territorial expansion, access to growing markets, and the spread of an "American way" of life. And Herring does all this in a story rich in human drama and filled with epic events. Statesmen such as Benjamin Franklin and Woodrow Wilson and Harry Truman and Dean Acheson played key roles in America's rise to world power. But America's expansion as a nation also owes much to the adventurers and explorers, the sea captains, merchants and captains of industry, the missionaries and diplomats, who discovered or charted new lands, developed new avenues of commerce, and established and defended the nation's interests in foreign lands. From Colony to Superpower captures all this as it tells the dramatic story of America's emergence as superpower—its birth in revolution, its troubled present, and its uncertain future.

Descripción Oxford University Press, 2011. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The strength of this book is the author''s Herculean power of synthesis.Herring recaptures a quarter-millennium of American foreign policy with fluidity and felicity.we have long been waiting for a single-volume history like this one, and "From Colony to Superpower" deserves a place on the bookshelf."--New York Times Book Review "Its first achievement is its feat of inclusiveness, managed by making quick work of many interesting subplots of the United States'' rich and complex relations with the world.The narrative power lies partly in identifying themes that gradually give a strong organizational cohesion to his story.It is revisionism of the best kind, quiet but insistent, reinforced by archival evidence and deftly drawn parallels."--Howard W. French,The New York Times "An impressive, up-to-date diplomatic history of the US that masterfully employs traditional, revisionnist, and in many instances synthetic interpretations in a story line from Colonial America to the second Bush administration. This will be an award-winning book that becomes the standard text for US diplomatic history. A superb accomplishment. Essential."--C.W. Haury,CHOICE "The only volume in the series that spans the entirety of the American past,From Colony to Superpowercould not be more timely, more colorful, or more compelling for Americans seeking to understand the causes and the consequences of the quagmires in Afghanistan and Iraq. Herring is well equipped to provide that analysis."--The Chronicle of Higher Education "A sweeping and lucid history.This authoritative work is destined to grace the bookshelves not only of scholars, but also of nonspecialists who want to understand how the US has engaged the world from the American Revolution to the administration of George W. Bush."--Christian Science Monitor "A model of clarity."--Dallas Morning News "This latest entry in the outstanding Oxford History of the United States is continually engrossing in its overview of American diplomacy. Herring''s lucid prose and thought-provoking arguments give this large tome a pace that never flags."--Publishers Weeklystarred review "The only themed volume so far in the ''Oxford History of the United States'' series, this work portrays the history of the world''s foremost republic through the prism of its international interactions. Striking is the emergence, through Herring''s clear and compelling storytelling, of certain themes in the way the United States has conducted and still conducts itself among nations.Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries."--Library Journal "A magisterial look at 232 years of diplomacy."--Reviews in American History "Magisterial."--National Interest "A mammoth volume that tracks the vagaries of American foreign policy over more than two centuries. It is encyclopedic in its reach, but remains a pleasurable read. Herring''s goal is more to explain than judge, and he performs the former with admirable skill."--Global Research "George Herring''s colossal history of US foreign relations has earned fully-deserved praise for its staggering erudition, lucid prose and brisk style."--The National "Impeccably written and deeply researched."--The Veteran: The Official Voice of Vietnam Veterans of America "Riveting."--The Post and Courier "The purpose of this ambitious and massive work is to track and explain how 13 separate, vulnerable British colonies evolved to carve out a position of dominance in world affairs. This is the latest volume in the Oxford History of the United States series.Herring effectively dismisses the myth of American isolationism. Even before our Revolution, Americans had strong economic ties with several European powers, and our diplomatic efforts were essential in facilitating the westward movement. Herring also deftly deals with the often-conflicting strains of idealism and pragmatism that have motivated our policy makers. Patient and. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0199765537
