Abstract

In this study an attempt has been made to show the influence of the American press in causing opposition to Spanish rule in Cuba and finally in bringing about the intervention of the United States in the island. The part played by the press in demanding intervention in the island offers abundant material for a study in war propaganda. Though this study is an indictment of the war-mongering press, it serves also to show the great power of newspapers when they work together in fostering international hatred and distrust. In the same way, the author argues, the united efforts of an enlightened press would prove tremendously effective in creating the conditions of world peace and a better understanding among all nations.
