The addresses introduced in the course of the journey to South the USA
and Mexico in 1906, and within the usa after his go back,
with their message of fine will, proclaim a brand new doctrine —
the Root doctrine — of kindly attention and of honorable

peoples of the Western global.

The addresses and the experiences on army and colonial
policy made by means of Mr. Root as Secretary of conflict clarify the
reorganization of the military after the Spanish-American conflict,
the construction of the final employees, and the institution of the
Army struggle collage. They hint the starting place of and provides the
reason for the coverage of this nation in Cuba, the Phihppines,
and Porto Rico, devised and inaugurated via him. it isn't
generally recognized that the so-called Piatt modification,
defining our relationships to Cuba, was once drafted via Mr. Root, and
that the natural Act of the Philippines used to be likewise the paintings
of Mr. Root as Secretary of warfare.

The argument ahead of The Hague Tribunal within the North
