dc.descriptionLittle has been written concerning the background of America's imperialist policy which reached its peak late in the nineteenth century. The process by which the island of Cuba came into the sphere of influence of the United States has not been given extensive study. At the same time that interest in Cuba was becoming strong, a movement for Cuban independence was tearing the ties that had bound the island to Spain, and another movement in Europe was concerned with preventing the realization of either the dream of Cuba or that of the United States. It has been necessary to include a lengthy consideration of the Philippine islands question, so that the reader may understand the "large policy" of all the nations involved. To a large extent the relations with the Philippines determined the future of Cuba. Two phases of the study need further research. Public opinion in Spain has not been depicted fully, and it is impossible to do so without considerable foreign study. Commercial and financial interests in Cuba before 1898 played a considerable part in determining the attitude of the island toward both the United States and Spain. I have not been able to work out these interests to my own satisfaction
