Overview

Following the Whiggish approach of earlier scholars, Earle (geography, Louisiana State U.) regards empire as an idealist function of the dynamics of jurisprudence and the territorial and extraterritorial extension of American jurisdiction. He focuses on the enlargement of American territorial jurisdiction through constitutional interpretation and reinterpretation in three stages: the sectional state from the 1780's to 1877, the national state to the 1970s, and the transnational state since then.
