This is a thoughtful critique of US history from a British journalist with extensive experience in our nation's capital. Since the opinions of other nations regarding US actions were ostentatiously ignored or even disparaged under the Bush administration, it is bracing to read what a thoughtful friend of the US has to say/recommend. Of course, for those who continue to feel that the US is a divinely commissioned superpower destined to lead the world in perpetuity, Hodgson's observations will not be readily accepted. Fortunately, some American history and geography departments have for years had professors also willing to look at US actions objectively. I refer to Walter LaFeber at Cornell, William Appleman Williams at Wisconsin, and Donald Meinig at Syracuse.
