    schema:description ""Jack McCallum has mined Wood's extensive personal records - including diaries, correspondence, and photographs - to create a vivid portrait of a complex and controversial man and his legacy. America's rapid conquest of Cuba and the Philippines and the subsequent political and economic reconstruction it imposed under Wood's military supervision in these regions have important parallels to current U.S. involvement in the Middle East, both in its successes and its failures."--Jacket."@en ;
