We reviewed the rise of American imperialism in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.  We already briefly reviewed some of the consequences of the Spanish-American War (Philippine Insurrection, Panama Canal, etc.)

Foreign Policy for a New Age and USDA Government Inspected have been posted to eSIS.
