Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0471646652, Hardcover)Acclaim for Robert Smith Thompson
The eagle triumphant
"The transition from Pax Britannica to Pax Americana is surely one of the most significant developments of the past century. With lively and vivid portrayals of the major personalities and crucial events, Thompson outlines the planning and institutional forces by which U.S. leaders took the place of their former British rival."
Empires on the Pacific
"Boldly sets out to explain how we came to be the only superpower on this planet."
"A truly important and complex new interpretation–an antidote really–to those jingoists who continue to frame the Second World War as a battle between good (the U.S.) and evil (Japan)."
"Empires on the Pacific is to be celebrated as one of the best accounts available of the war against Japan."
A Time for War
"Intriguing. . . . This book is the clearest exposition so far of the revisionist theory of U.S. provocation of Germany and Japan."
"Provocative revisionist history that could stimulate a widespread reevaluation of the traditional view of why America entered World War II."
