Beschreibung

In 1898: The Birth of the American Century, David Traxel tells the story of a watershed year, a year of foreign conflict, extravagant adventure, and breakneck social change that forged a new Americaa sudden empire with many far-flung possessions, a dynamic new player upon the global stage.At the heart of this vivid, anecdotal history is a masterly account of the Spanish-American War, the ",splendid little war", that garnered the nation Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines.From the sinking of the Maine in waters off Havana to Teddy Roosevelt's rough riders and the triumph of Admiral Dewey, here is the lightning-swift military episode that transformed America into a world power. Here too are many stories not so often toldthe bloody first successes of the new United Mine Workers, the tentative beginnings of the Ford Motor Company, the million-dollar launch of the Uneeda Biscuiteach in its way as important as the harbinger of the American century. Compulsively readable, frequently humorous, utterly fascinating in its every detail, 1898 is popular history at its finest.From the Trade Paperback edition.
