"Tucker, editor of several war encyclopedias for ABC-CLIO, lays out a comprehensive overview of the Spanish-American and Philippine-American wars, both of which changed the position of the United States in the world. The first two volumes contain over 600 signed A-to-Z entries that describe the most significant people, battles, events, and geographic locations from the United States and around the world, as well as more general cultural, social, and economic topics. Photographs and other images, such as maps and broadsides, accompany more than half of the entries. The third volume contains 153 primary-source documents from the period. Bottom Line ABC-CLIO is known for high-quality encyclopedias, and this one does not disappoint. It will provide researchers in academic and large public libraries with the context needed for further research." – Library Journal "This comprehensive encyclopedia provides detailed coverage of the era of the Spanish-American and Philippine- American wars that began to establish the emergence of the U.S. as a world power. Two volumes include more than 600 entries that cover individuals, battles, weapons, and events as well as economic, cultural, and social topics. A third volume includes documents with more than 150 primary source texts which provides readers firsthand access to how the wars began and the experiences of participants. The encyclopedia also includes more than 350 illustrations, photographs, and maps. An extensive bibliography also is included. Tucker is emeritus in military history at the Virginia Military Institute." – Reference & Research Book News "Spencer C. Tucker, Senior Fellow of Military History at ABC-CLIO, is editor of the encyclopedia and it possesses the same quality and depth associated with his many previous works, including his most recent encyclopedias on the Cold War (see ARBA 2008, entry 583) and the Arab-Israeli Conflict (see ARBA 2009, entry 127). . . . This encyclopedia is recommended for high school, public library, and undergraduate collections." – ARBAonline "ABC-CLIO adds another title to its respected series of military history references with the recent release of the Encyclopedia of the Spanish-American and Philippine-American Wars: A Political, Social, and Military History. . . . Encyclopedia of the Spanish-American and Philippine-American Wars: A Political, Social, and Military History is easily the most thorough and comprehensive reference work dealing with these wars. Teaming with his co-editors James Arnold and Roberta Wiener, Mr. Tucker has produced an encyclopedia that meets the standards set in his previous award winning efforts. Both academic and larger public libraries will find it a useful addition to their collections." – Against the Grain "Dealing with conflicts that receive comparatively little academic and popular attention, this set offers sweeping coverage of American victories over Spain in Cuba and the Philippines. …Both accessible to the novice researcher and detailed enough for the scholar, this encyclopedia offers exceptional and unique coverage of an often-neglected aspect of U.S. history." – Booklist "This encyclopedia will be very valuable for all academic libraries supporting undergraduate and graduate programs in American, Asian, and Latino history, and for those libraries wishing to boost their late-19th-century/early-20th-century history collections. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." – Choice "Expert contributions from a team of scholars of American military history offer detailed articles, while a separate Documents Volume with over 150 primary-source texts provide extensive references suitable for any detailed student report." – Midwest Book Review Book Description On the cusp of the 20th century, victory over Spain in Cuba and the Philippines marked the beginning of the United StatesÕ emergence as a world power. With William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Pulitzer, and other media moguls fueling the countryÕs sense of itself as a nation of destiny, the Spanish-American War also saw the capacity of the media to shape public opinion and national policy reach an unprecedented level.
