Book Description: In 1899 the United States, having announced its arrival as a world power during the Spanish-Cuban-American War, inaugurated a brutal war of imperial conquest against the Philippine Republic. Over the next five decades, U.S. imperialists justified their colonial empire by crafting novel racial ideologies adapted to new realities of collaboration and anticolonial resistance. In this pathbreaking, transnational study, Paul A. Kramer reveals how racial politics served U.S. empire, and how empire-building in turn transformed ideas of race and nation in both the United States and the Philippines. Kramer argues that Philippine-American colonial history was characterized by struggles over sovereignty and recognition. In the wake of a racial-exterminist war, U.S. colonialists, in dialogue with Filipino elites, divided the Philippine population into ''civilized'' Christians and ''savage'' animists and Muslims. The former were subjected to a calibrated colonialism that gradually extended them self-government as they demonstrated their ''capacities.'' The latter were governed first by Americans, then by Christian Filipinos who had proven themselves worthy of shouldering the ''white man's burden.'' Ultimately, however, this racial vision of imperial nation-building collided with U.S. nativist efforts to insulate the United States from its colonies, even at the cost of Philippine independence. Kramer provides an innovative account of the global transformations of race and the centrality of empire to twentieth-century U.S. and Philippine histories.

Book Description: “A brilliant, quirky keyhole into the armed and dangerous brains of America’s fringe—which is no longer fringe” (Greg Palast, New York Times–bestselling author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy). Bill Fulton was army infantry. But when his knees gave out, he opened Drop Zone, a military surplus store in Anchorage, and started hiring fellow vets. Sharpshooting hippies, crew-cutted fundamentalists, and PTSD sufferers—all seeking purpose and direction. Alaska gave it to them. Fulton was enjoying the ride until, one day, the FBI asked him to go undercover, and his road forked. A sovereign citizen who believed no government had authority over him, Schaeffer Cox was a private militia commander amassing an arsenal and plotting to kill judges and law enforcement officers. Fulton’s mission: Take down Cox and his militia without any shots fired. Raucously funny and stark, The Blood of Patriots depicts men, once brothers in arms serving their country, who now find themselves on opposite sides in a deadly test of the intricacies of liberty, the proper role of government, and the true meaning of patriotism. It offers a witty and unsettling look at political rhetoric gone haywire and a movement the FBI considers the single greatest threat to law enforcement in the nation—all set in the beautiful, terrifying landscape of our forty-ninth state. “One hell of a read . . . A page turner that combines the thrilling elements of a Richard North Patterson novel with the hard hitting gonzo reportage of the late Hunter S. Thompson.” —Jason Leopold, Buzzfeed
