Featuring Daniel Immerwahr and Ed Morales on October 10, 2019

While the US has moved away from the term “colony,” the legacy of its colonial rule endures. In this week’s episode, World Affairs is talking about America’s covert history of expansion and how that has impacted the people who live in those places. Daniel Immerwahr, professor of history at Northwestern University and author of the book, How to Hide an Empire, A History of the Greater United States, and Ed Morales, journalist and author of the new book, Fantasy Island: Colonialism, Exploitation, and the Betrayal of Puerto Rico, join World Affairs co-host Ray Suarez to discuss how Puerto Rico and other American territories navigate their complicated national identities.
