Hietala shows that it was not destiny but design and aggression that enabled the United States to control Texas, New Mexico, and California. HistorianHietala has examined an impressive array of primary and secondary materials.

. . . His handling of the relationship between the domestic and foreign policies of the decade shatters some myths about Americas so-called manifest destiny and deserves the attention of all scholars and serious students of the period.

Western Historical QuarterlySince 1845, the phrase manifest destiny has offered a simple and appealing explanation of the dramatic expansionism of the United States. In this incisive book, Thomas R. Hietala reassesses the complex factors behind American policymaking during the late Jacksonian era. Hietala argues that the quest for territorial and commercial gains was based more on a desire for increased national stability than on any response to demands by individual pioneers or threats from abroad.
