    Generations of American history students grew up believing that slave rebellion was relatively rare, that slaves accepted their lot and became attached to their masters, and that they were ultimately liberated with little or no effort of their own. Liberally sprinkled with quotations from Civil War-era blacks, both slave and free, Breaking the Chains gives readers a well-researched look at the lives of real slaves. From their African abductions, through their brave resistance to harsh plantation owners, to their roles in the Civil War, their own indomitable spirits shine through as the driving force behind their emancipation.

    William Loren Katz explains the occupation of Iraq from the perspective of the 1898 U.S. invasion of the Philippines and the murderous colonial rule that lasted there for 12 years. The racism, cruelty, and economic greed the U.S. brought with it became the template for 20th-century imperialist interventions.
