Hoyt explores three centuries of America's military sphere, including the history behind excursions onto foreign soil and involvement in political conflicts around the world. He finds a policy and environment largely based on a kind of American political evangelism, which he traces as a distorted offshoot of the American Revolution. Because revolution worked for us, we may be determined to spread the same idea to other countries.
