Publishers Description: American acquisition of the Philippines Filipino resistance to it became a focal point for debate on imperialism. In a lively narrative, Miller tells the story of the war how it challenged America's sense of innocence. He examines the roles of key actors--generals, presidents, soldiers senators--in America's colonial adventure. "The most thorough, balanced, well-written study to date of America's imperial adventure in the western Pacific the most persuasive analysis of the varied reactions of the American people to the military subjugation of the Filipinos...[Told] with clarity, wit a talent for the apt quotation."--Richard E. Welch, Jr, NY Times Book Review" A triumph of research, synthesis storytelling, this is the wisest book on its subject , implicitly, a significant cultural critique of the United States at the turn of the century."--Peter Stanley, Asia "The author's balanced summary of the historiography of imperialism the epilogue, which considers the Philippine/Vietnam analogy, are valuable features of the work...Should remain the definitive account of these events."--Library Journal "Written with clarity argued with passion from a wealth of primary sources."--Jack C. Lane, Journal of American History
