The forty years between the beginning of the Civil War and the turn of the century witnessed the spectacular development of the United States as a major economic and political force. Prelude to World Power begins with the days when the Union was in its hour of most dire peril, when Lincolin and his secretary of State, William Seward, averted possible European intervention in the Civil War. The drama includes such history-making events as the purchase of Alaska, the gradual extension of American interests in eastern Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and the Pacific, the "splendid little war" with Spain, the Open Door in China.
