Abstract

REVIEWS Habits of Empire certainly has its strengths. Nugent's many decades of work in the field of international relations has given him an undeniable expertise and comfort with the words and actions of generations of diplomats. He makes ample use of sources in Spanish, and gives attention to many non-U.S. perspectives. Most significantly, Nugent highlights the fact that imperialism was central to the foreign policy of the antebellum period. In this he shows his intellectual kinship with McGuinness, and proves that despite their many differences, Habits of Empire and Path of Empire share far more than similar titles. Am y S. G ree nbe rg is professor of American history and women's studies at the Pennsylvania State University. She is author of Manifest Manhood and the Antebellum American Empire (Cambridge, UK, 2005) and Cause for Alarm: The Volunteer Fire Department in the NineteenthCentury City (Princeton, NJ, 1998). She is currently at work on a study of the U.S.­Mexico War. Freedom's Prophet: Bishop Richard Allen, the AME Church, and the Black Founding Fathers. By Richard S. Newman.
