This fascinating title looks at the politics and policies that allowed for the expansive growth of America after World War II. Maps, both contemporary and historical, and easy-to-understand text discuss how the United States claimed authority over three unincorporated territories (Guam, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands), two independent commonwealths (Puerto Rico and the Northern Mariana Islands), and dozens of sparsely populated islands around the world, making it the third-largest country in the world. Using many primary source images, this title defines why the United States required these lands and what we are using them for.
