Using all of this week’s resources, discuss American imperialism in the broader sense of a global perspective.
What were the reasons for the Spanish-American and Philippine-American wars? What goals were American imperialists discussed in this week’s readings trying to achieve? Remember to bring in material from this week’s readings and media to support your argument.
