Abstract

This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the wars that saw the United States emerge as a world power and that had immense implications for America, especially in Latin America and Asia. The encyclopedia offers two complete volumes of alphabetically organized entries written by some of the world's foremost historians, covering everything from the course of the wars to relevant economic, social, and cultural matters in the United States, Spain, and other nations. Featuring a separate volume of primary-source documents and a collection of images and maps, the encyclopedia portrays the day-to-day drama and lasting legacy of the war, guiding readers through a seminal event in America's transition from the Gilded Age to the Progressive Era.
