As a result of an unanticipated outcome of the Spanish-American War of 1898 and arrival of the United States as a world power, the United States had the task of "civilizing" the Moros of the southern Philippine Islands. This book chronicles the nation's first experience in occupying, ruling, and attempting to transform a traditional Islamic society and place it on an uncertain path towards democracy.
