This chapter introduces the concept of “lost geography” and the American Century. It begins by discussing the two events that may be considered as the bookends of the American Century and the two central themes of the book. It then examines the rise of the American Empire, which was the most commanding event in the cultural and political economy of the twentieth century. This is followed by discussions on the three formative moments in the rise of the United States to globalism.
