Chapter 27 Identities Alfred Thayer Mahan Alfred Thayer Mahan was a famous 19th-century author. Mahan is credited with writing the military strategy book, The Influence of Sea Power Upon History. Additionally, Mahan was a graduate of West Point and the captain of the USS Chicago, retiring to be a rear admiral. Imperialism Imperialism was a process in which a strong country dominates a smaller country or smaller countries economically, politically, and socially. America engaged in much imperialism during the 19th century, as shown in such events as the establishment of the Panamá Canal. Pan-American Conference The Pan-American Conferences were initiated by American Secretary of State James G. Blaine in 1889. The first Pan-American Conference, also known as the First International Conference of American States, established the Union of American Republics, which would later be known as the Pan-American Union, to better regulate or establish international relations regarding territory, criminals, and the codification of international law. Jingoism Jingoism is a form of overzealous patriotism, where citizens advocate for the strong- arming of other sovereign states to further the goals of their own nation. Jingoism plagued America when the annexation of Hawaii occurred, and the US Senate and President Benjamin Harrison were accused of Jingoism. Yellow Journalism Yellow Journalism is a type of journalism that is highly sensationalized or exaggerated. Yellow Journalism was popularized by Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst via the New York World and San Francisco Examiner newspapers, especially in regards to the sinking of the Maine.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
