Daniel Immerwahr, Northwestern University.

I am a scholar of U.S. and global history, specializing in development, empire, and the history of ideas. My first book, Thinking Small, offers a critical account of the United States' pursuit of grassroots development at home and abroad in the middle of the twentieth century. I'm now writing another book, How to Hide an Empire, about the United States' overseas territory.
