Summary "While Protestant justifications for U.S. empire are well known, this book argues that as the U.S. consolidated its continental dominion, established overseas colonies, and built a global empire of production and commerce in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, Protestant and Catholic Americans began to celebrate Catholic imperial pasts as origins of and models for the American imperial future"-- Provided by publisher.
