This is an unflinching look at the US from the perspective of those who witnessed its birth, and continue to watch it grow. Dunbar-Ortiz follows the development of diplomacy, military campaigns and American expansion from their earliest stages to the present. You can expect the jarring facts and alternate histories you never learned in school; what you won't expect is how the light is shone on the ideas we are surrounded with and take for granted daily, their legacy, and their implications for the future.

This book expands on what you may have already learned in school but it also brings up topics that you may have *not* learned: like the colonization of Hawai'i, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Samoa, the Caribbean & other islands that are often left out of the conversation yet still deserve visibility. I appreciate the inclusion of Black, Mexican & Chinese people because our histories were very much intertwined & that's not always considered. It also tackled the idea of manifest destiny & pointed out how harmful it was/is.
