Rate this:
In 1905 President Teddy Roosevelt dispatched Secretary of War William Taft, his gun-toting daughter Alice and a gaggle of congressmen on a mission to Japan , the Philippines , China , and Korea . There, they would quietly forge a series of agreements that divided up Asia . At the time, Roosevelt was bully-confident about America 's future on the continent. But these secret pacts lit the fuse that would-decades later-result in a number of devastating wars: WWII, the Korean War, the communist revolution in China . One hundred years later, James Bradley retraces that epic voyage and discovers the remarkable truth about America 's vast imperial past-and its world-shaking consequences. Full of fascinating characters and brilliantly told, THE IMPERIAL CRUISE will forever reshape the way we understand U.S. history
