Volume 1 of this definitive history considers the origins of the Spanish-American War. The "progressive" reading of history focuses on two major antecedents for the origins of the United States?? 1898 war with Spain: the 1896 presidential election and the Hearst-Pulitzer press war that, reportedly, generated an irresistible clamor from an "aroused public." Volume 2 assesses five theories that have dominated analysis of modern societies in the last century??"liberalism, Marxism, mass society, pluralism, and elitism??"in accounting for the war. It is also concerned with the war??s outcome; the settlement in which the U.S. gained an "empire."
