Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the aftermath of the Spanish-American War. Watterson adopted a new foreign policy due to his belief that the older, somewhat fitful policies of the nineteenth century needed to be folded into a coherent program. This program was to be composed of equal parts colonialism and free trade imperialism. He also provided rather hair-splitting but frail distinctions between expansion and imperialism.

Keywords: aftermath; Spanish-American War; foreign policy; nineteenth century; colonialism; free trade imperialism; distinctions; expansion; imperialism
