Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome travel writer DOUG MACK, author of "Europe on Five Wrong Turns a Day," for a discussion of his latest book, "The Not-Quite States of America: Dispatches from the Territories and Other Far-Flung Outposts of the USA." This book is an entertaining account of the territories’ place in the USA, and it raises fascinating questions about the nature of empire. As Mack shows, the territories aren’t mere footnotes to American history; they are a crucial part of the story.
