Historian Stephen Kinzer (@StephenKinzer) joins us to talk about his new book, "The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire." America's dueling impulses toward isolation and intervention. The unremembered prevalence of anti-imperialism at the turn of the 19th century. Complaints of "glut" as a rationale for taking foreign territories.
