    1. In the final decade of his life, Mark Twain became the most visible spokesman for The American Anti-Imperialist League. This organisation was formed to oppose America's annexation and subjugation of the Philippines, and the Philippine-American War that accomplished that goal.

    3. This is a compilation of Mark Twains writings on the war in the Philippines and other military ventures of the late 19th and early 20th century. I honestly think that many of these passages could be used to describe current goings on in American politics and while not all of the selected works are created equal, the ones that resonate through history make the entire book worth the read. However, some of the passages are dated and will make this short collection drag at certain points.
