Overview


This lively, thought-provoking analysis is based on the author's highly acclaimed Presidency of William McKinley.

"This is by all odds the best study of the coming of the war, the war itself, and the aftermath of the conflict."—Paul S. Holbo, University of Oregon.

"According to the author, McKinley's enhancement of presidential power and his personal leadership in war-making and diplomacy made him 'the first truly modern president.' This thesis is carefully developed and effectively argued. . . . The book's brevity, readability, and interpretive insights make it attractive for the classroom. . . . But this is no mere digest for undergraduates, for more advanced scholars can learn from it, too."—Pacific Historical Review.

The Spanish-American War and President McKinley 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
historianWI More than 1 year ago
The last president to expand the territory of the U.S. and the first modern president. He understood how to stick to a theme of the day and assertively get the press to get people behind him. He was better than Wilson at getting international treaties ratified. Even though he was in command, he knew how to get congress involved in his success. He understood the need for a canal through the middle of the American continent, and picked a Vice President (TR) who followed up on his plans, even though TR did it more as a blowhard with less people skills than WM. William McKinley made the U.S. a united hemisphere and world power in a more compassionate and respectful way than ruthless thugs like Spain.
