Summary: The United States first announced its power on the international scene at the Centennial Exhibition in 1876 and first demonstrated that power during World War I. The years in between were a period of dramatic change, when the dynamics of industrialization rapidly accelerated the rate at which Americans were coming in contact with foreign peoples, both at home and abroad.

In Barbarian Virtues, Matthew Frye Jacobson shows how American conceptions of peoplehoo
d, citizenship, and national identity were transformed in these crucial years by the escalation of economic and military involvement abroad and by the massive influx of immigrants at home. Drawing upon a diverse range of sources -- not only traditional political documents but also novels, travelogues, academic treatises, and art -- Jacobson demonstrates the close relationship between immigration and expansionism. By bridging these two areas, so often left separate, he rethinks the texture of American political life in a keenly argued and persuasive history. Barbarian Virtues shows how these years set the stage for today's attitudes and ideas about "Americanism" and about immigrants and foreign policy.
