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."
–Noam Chomsky

Empires on the Pacific

"Boldly sets out to explain how we came to be the only superpower on this planet."
–Los Angeles Times

"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)."
–Douglas Brinkley

"Empires on the Pacific is to be celebrated as one of the best accounts available of the war against Japan."
–Toronto Globe & Mail

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."
–Publishers Weekly

"Provocative revisionist history that could stimulate a widespread reevaluation of the traditional view of why America entered World War II."

–Kirkus Reviews
