Imperialism in The Late 19th Century Paper

You will write a 3-5 page paper that describes the debate over imperialism in the late-1800s. What were the major arguments for and against imperialism? The paper should ultimately answer the question: Based on the arguments of those who supported or opposed imperialism, which side won the debate and why? Look at the policies and actions of the United States during that period and the decades after to decide which side better influenced and impacted US development. You will not need to use sources other than the class materials but you MUST cite your evidence from the class materials, and should focus on making a persuasive case promoting your argument/interpretation.
