Description: 

Professor Michael Parenti examines the transition of the United States from a nation concerned with North America, to one with global imperial interrests. The 1898 Spanish-American war began the process, wresting Cuba and the Philippines from Spanish hands. The new movement came with increased pressure by United States businessmen for new markets, particularly those of declining world power Spain. Although the war was publicly being fought to free people from repressive Spanish rule, the United States continually denied aid to nationalistic movements both before and after the takeover in 1898.|MYTHS GOVERNING THE SPANISH AMERICAN WAR AND THE RISE OF U.S. IMPERICALISM / Michael Parenti| produced by Blair Zarubick.
