Riguardo questo articolo

Over a 100 years before George Bush decided to liberate the peoples of Iraq, President McKinley made a similar move to take Spanish shackles off the sugar-workers of Cuba. (Puerto Rico, Philippines and the Caroline Islands were similarly released from subjugation - these actions are also mentioned in the book - see Dewey in the Philippines (page 516). These 560 pages of jingoistic journalism largely cover the details of the American side of the conflict. Plenty of b/w photos. The high-light of this volume is the laid-in COLOUR MAP of Cuba. Also of interst are the commentaries on tobacco and sugar production - pp. 118 -121. Also, some tourist attractions are given mention (Caves of Bellamar). Tables of relative military strengths on pages 335 -343 are quite telling. Reminiscences of individual soldiers and sailors are given in the last CHAPTER. Cond : Boards are forest green with gilt lettering on face. Quarter bound in embossed leather. Spine top is lightly tattered - i.e. : finger pulls some v. minor wear at tips. Some light rubbing at hinges, and light soiling on spine. COLOURS bright, binding tight. Volume has an `old-book' smell. End-papers are white page 427 has a half inch tear. Issued w/o dust jacket (??). Page edges are marbled. No names, stains, nor marks. Light soiling, no foxing. Collectible !! Quote (p. 121) : " There are several varieties, but the Ohaheitan seems to be the most generally cultivated. Between the time when enough of the cane is ripe to warrant the getting up of steam at the grinding mill, and the time when the heat and the rain spoils . .". Codice inventario libreria 003660
