Chapter 27 Notes In his book Our Country: Its Possible Future and Its Present Crisis , the Reverend Josiah Strong advocated American expansion to spread American religion and values. By the 1890s, the United States was bursting with a new sense of power generated by an increase in population, wealth, and industrial production. A major factor in the shift in American foreign policy toward imperialism in the late nineteenth century was the need for overseas markets for increased industrial and agricultural production. The 1889 Pan-American Conference resulted in the lowering of tariff barriers between participating nations. U.S. naval captain Alfred Thayer Mahan argued that control of the sea was the key to the United States' world domination. The numerous near-wars and diplomatic crises of the United States in the late 1880s and 1890s demonstrated the aggressive new national mood. To Justify American intervention in the Venezuela boundary dispute with Britain, Secretary of State Olney invoked the Monroe Doctrine. During the boundary dispute between Venezuela and Britain, the United States supported the Venezuelan claim. One reason that the British submitted their border dispute with Venezuela to arbitration was their growing tensions with Germany made settlement seem wise. The Venezuela boundary dispute was settled by arbitration of the Venezuelan and British claims.

    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.
