Expansionist policies of the United States in the early 19th century when Manifest Destiny was the byword of government. Canada looked like easy pickings to expand the country's borders.

US citizens don't know anything about the war of 1812.....it was too stupid to memorialize. But for Canadians, it was a defining moment. We should understand that, because despite our bad behavior, they have been good and honorable neighbors.

This is a wonderful book for the general reader and expert alike. Under general sources, I would have liked to see a reference to "The Language of Democracy: Political Rhetoric in the United States and Britain, 1790-1900" by Prof. Andrew W. Robertson.

Thank you.

Most academics have well-developed fear of wars that
that are waged over maritime issues, which makes an author like Troy
Bickham's over react to less important aspects of the War of 1812 as he and many others
compensate for this important void by giving too much space to the discussion of
secondary issues such as pre war politics and unimportant land engagements. Bickham,
who was educated at Oxford, picked up many of Britain's bias along the way, but here again he is joined by
loads of American taught scholars who think they are wiser by becoming Anglophiles.
