Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the midst of the culture wars raging in the United States, this book recovers a part of U.S. history that some wish to forget--the war of 1898. With the war, U.S. policymakers terminated more than four centuries of Spanish colonial rule in the region and launched a paradigm for U.S.-Latin American relations that dominated the 20th century. The war inaugurated an era of profound change not only in U.S. policy toward Latin America, but also in regional cultures and identities within the United States, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines.

Virginia M. Bouvier underscores the importance of the war in defining American identities. Contributors discuss such items as Spanish perspectives on the U.S. role in the conflict, the multiple and conflicted identities of the Cuban émigré community, and the capacity of gender discourse to explain Congressional actions. A final bibliographic essay reviews recent scholarship on the war. Scholars, students, and researchers involved with American and Latin American history will find this collection particularly valuable.

Book News Annotation:

Specialists in Latin American history and literature, all but one from the US, present eight essays from an October 1998 conference at the University of Maryland on what is called, among other things, the Spanish-American War and the Cuban War of Independence. One looks at the historical underpinnings of US intervention, and three at the legacies of the war. The others explore Spanish perspectives, Cuban immigrants to the US, political cartoons, and the imperatives of manhood in the congressional debate.
