Howard Zinn on the US's Fascination with War.

Howard Zinn's words narrate the history of the U.S.'s desire to expand through land-grabbing and obtaining power. He repeats the coined words used to rationalize and diminish the behavior's face value: manifest destiny, expansionism, et cetera. Evidence such as the government's own records (Pentagon Papers) give us a less kind impression.

Of course, I can't post Zinn without recommending the best history book in existence:

A People's History of the United States: 1492 to Present
