Summary: American acquisition of the Philippines and Filipino resistance to it became a focal point for debate on American imperialism. In a lively narrative, Miller tells the story of the war and how it challenged Americas sense of innocence. He examines the roles of key actors-the generals and presidents, the soldiers and senators-in Americas colonial adventure. ''The most thorough, balanced, and well-written study to date of Americas imperial adventure in the western Pacific and the most p
ersuasive analysis of the varied reactions of the American people to the military subjugation of the Filipinos. . . . Told] with clarity, wit and a talent for the apt quotation.''-Richard E. Welch, Jr., The New York Times Book Review ''A triumph of research, synthesis and storytelling, this is the wisest book on its subject and, implicitly, a significant cultural critique of the United States at the turn of the century.''-Peter Stanley, Asia ''The authors balanced summary of the historiography of imperialism and 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 and argued with passion from a wealth of primary sources.''-Jack C. Lane, The Journal of American History
