This bloody, blundering business, or the price of empire

Traces the history of American intervention in the Philippines following the Spanish-American War until 1946, concentrating on the Insurrection of 1898-1901 and the period immediately following. Reveals the nature of American attitudes toward Third World peoples and cultures and offers insights into the parallels of that period with contemporary American foreign policy.

The production quality is not excellent, the transfer to video has not been kind, the historical impact is very important. Every American should watch this video. The similarities of then to now will only leave you scratching your head. This is a documentary of early American Imperialism exposing the foundation of America's last one hundred years. ~Mike
