The Americans in Santo Domingo
The Americans in Santo Domingo
By Melvin M. Knight
Vanguard, 1928, 208 pp.

This, the first of a series of studies in American imperialism, represents perhaps the first attempt to review the relations of the United States to Santo Domingo in a broad way, taking full account of the business relations as well as of political contacts. The viewpoint is anti-imperialistic, but it should be stressed that the book is a scholarly and conscientious attempt to give a true picture of the gradual entrenchment of American interests and a succinct discussion of the problems arising therefrom.
