How a new American identity was forged by immigration and expansion a century ago.
In "Barbarian Virtues," Matthew Frye Jacobson offers a keenly argued and persuasive history of the close relationship between immigration and America''s newly expansionist ambitions at the turn of the twentieth century. Jacobson draws upon political documents, novels, travelogues, academic treatises, and art as he recasts American political life. In so doing, he shows how today''s attitudes about "Americanism" -- from Border Watch to the Gulf War -- were set in this crucial period, when the dynamics of industrialization rapidly accelerated the rate at which Americans were coming in contact with foreign peoples.

Through a study of encounters with foreigners and the foreign as a result of a combination of immigration and America's growing international presence, the author examines how Americans' sense of identity and values were shaped at the approach of what was to be called "the American Century."
