American Empire: How North America's Geography Shaped America's Global Empire Building  

North America's dramatic, diverse, demanding geography required a different kind of person to conquer it. Through many generations Americans developed the requisite innovative abilities to cope with this challenge, creating in the process a unique American character that has shaped the nation's role since its inception and is with us still as our empire went global in the 20th century. As our baseline for discussion we will read and analyze Robert Kaplan's best-selling "Earning the Rockies" (ISBN 978-0-399-58822-8) (180 pages). Read first three chapters for first session.
