In 1898, after the sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor, pro-war arguments in the American press induced public opinion to favor fighting what would become the Spanish-American War. However, not of all America were war hawks; Resistance to the Spanish-American and Philippine Wars presents the views and voices of those members of the American public who tried to halt the conflict. Analyzing anti-war arguments that preceded the Spanish-American War and persisted through the war in the Philippines, Resistance to the Spanish-American and Philippine Wars distills news articles, letters to editors, opinion pieces, and other mouthpieces of the anti-war groups who tried and failed to stop a war with Spain. Highly recommended, especially for public and college library American history collections.
