Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE IMPERIAL CRUISE

"Incendiary...[The Imperial Cruise] is startling enough to reshape conventional wisdom about Roosevelt's presidency."--Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A provocative study...What is fascinating about Bradley's reconstruction of a largely neglected aspect of Roosevelt's legacy is the impact that his racial theories and his obsession with personal and national virility had on his diplomacy. Engrossing and revelatory, The Imperial Cruise is revisionist history at its best."--Ronald Steel, New York Times Book Review
"[Bradley's] ingenious narrative thread is to track an across-the-pacific 1905 goodwill voyage by Roosevelt's emissaries....[his indictment of Roosevelt] raises tantalizing questions."--Gene Santoro, American History
"For readers under the impression that history is the story of good guys and bad guys...this book could be useful medicine."--USA Today
"A page-turner."--Associated Press
