A review of Stephen Kinzer's book titled "The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire," praised the author for his insights into America's historical struggle over imperialism. Blake Maddux of WBUR wrote, "As Kinzer makes clear, the United States might have been less likely to repeat its mistakes abroad if its leaders learned the lessons of the Spanish-American War."
