God's Arbiters

Americans and the Philippines, 1898-1902

Susan K. Harris

Imagining the Americas

  • Provides a briskly paced cultural history of the seldom discussed Philippine-American War, a conflict often treated as a footnote to the Spanish American War
  • Written in a crisp, engaging style that will appeal to history buffs and scholars
  • Draws on key figures like Mark Twain, William McKinley, Albert Beveridge, José Rizal, and others to bring the anti-imperialist debates of the 19th century to life
