bibliography at the end of the book lists many important titles, though I don't believe he could have possibly read all these works and still produce this book. And Mayer neither footnotes any of the evidence, nor acknowledges arguments articulated by other scholars. In the 1980s graduate students' lore told of Mayer beginning his colloquia by pounding on the table and declaring that the goal of teaching history is to expose the truth about the way the world really worked starting with the recognition that the United States "is an imperialist nation" that has "the rest of the world by the balls."
