Summary
Mark Twain called it 'pious hypocrisies'. President McKinley called it 'civilizing and Christianizing'. Both were referring to the US annexation of the Philippines in 1899. Drawing on documents ranging from Noah Webster's 1832 History of the United States to Congressional speeches and newspaper articles, and the anti-imperialist writings of Mark Twain, this book assesses the attitudes of Americans and the moralistic rhetoric that governed national and international debates over America's global mission at the turn into the twentieth century
