Colonial Policies of the United States

By Theodore Roosevelt
Doubleday, 1937
204 pp. $2.00

Colonel Roosevelt has served as Governor of Puerto Rico and as Governor-General of the Philippines. He is therefore in an unrivalled position to give us a sound critique of American colonial policy, and that is what he has done in this admirable little book. After surveying the expansion of the United States as a colonial power, he concludes that it is impossible for a democracy like ours properly to manage an empire.
