George Ade's "Stories of 'Benevolent Assimilation'"

Here, in this volume, Prof. Gianakos has collected for the first time the 16 "stories of 'benevolent assimilation'" that George Ade wrote for the Chicago Record where they ran weekly from 8 July to 18 October 1899. These stories serve as a delightful reminder that not everyone at the turn of the century took the beginnings of America's "Days of Empire" too seriously... Ade "thought the idea of Americans trying to transform the Filipino into Asiatic carbon copies of American democrats was almost too absurd for words."
