Excerpt

There are hundreds of books concerning Cuba, but none of them treats the subject from the standpoint of the part that the island has played in American history and international relations. Recent significant events in the West Indies have induced me to undertake this study. The nature of the subject has led to an extensive consideration of the American policy of expansion.

Part of Chapter V. appears in the Report of the American Historical Association for December, 1897. The substance of other chapters has been presented in a course of lectures at Johns Hopkins University, and also at Hamilton College.

In submitting this work to the public, I desire especially to acknowledge the courtesies of Mr. Pendleton King, Chief of the Bureau of Archives and Indexes; Mr. Andrew H. Allen, Chief of the Bureau of Rolls and Library, and Mr. S. M. Hamilton, Custodian of Archives, in rendering manuscript materials accessible, and in facilitating my researches at the Department of State. Such kindness and interest have increased the pleasure of work. I am under deep obligation to Professor Herbert B. Adams for valuable suggestions and assistance. My thanks are also due to Miss Elizabeth R. Daran and Dr W. W. Willoughby, who have aided me in reading proofs; and to General Daniel E. Sickles, who has kindly examined the proofs of Chapter XII.

The principal sources of material are given on another page.
