Savage acts( Visual )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S. overseas expansion at the turn of the century was not just the concern of government and business; it was the stuff of everyday life. Savage Acts tells the story of how the Philippine War and American domestic culture forged a new U.S. foreign policy. Soldiers' letters, world's fair exhibitions, early films, travel guides, and heroic monuments expressed the growing sense of national mission based on ideas of racial superiority. But the victory of imperialist policies was not inevitable; expansion and the way it was expressed in the daily life of the nation sparked opposition both at home and abroad
