In this volume, Hamilton deals with some of the antecedents and the outcome of the Spanish-American war, specifically, the acquisition of an American empire. It critiques the "progressive" view of those events, questioning the notion that businessmen (and compliant politicians) aggressively sought new markets, particularly those of Asia. Hamilton shows that the Asian market remained minuscule in the following decades, and that other historical works have neglected the most important change in the nation’s trade pattern, the growth of the Canada market, which two decades after the 1898 war, became the United States’ largest foreign market.

Imperialism in the "progressive" framework -- Business dominance : the assumption of competence -- American outreach? : Hawaii, 1893 and 1898 -- American outreach? : Venezuela, 1895 -- The new empire : promise and achievements -- The empire : subsequent experience.
