Narrator Luis Moreno carries a heavy load here, with more than 17 hours of audio, but he's outstanding. Few Americans think of our country as an empire, and Daniel Immerwahr wants us to understand why. Moreno's expressive voice complements the author's narrative style, which is warm and personal rather than academic. Immerwahr builds a compelling case that the United States has long been a colonial power, although we and our government have always been reluctant to acknowledge this. It's an argument that could have come across as strident, but the author's evenhandedness and Moreno's skillful delivery will quickly win over the listener. By the end, any skepticism about idea of America as empire will evaporate. D.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
