- What is the best book on the Teddy's big stick policy (speak softy,
carry a big stick?) I have grown a major interest about foreign
policy in the Imperialism era of America. I'm in High School, so I
don't get a lot of information and I don't see any egroup on the
topic: Imperialism in America.
I know T. R. was big supporter of imperialist ideas with Sen. Lodge
and Mahan, but I don't know how Roosevelt "actually" appear to the
world, in the sense, of the cartoons of this era depicting T.R., as
the policeman of the world (with the Big Stick). I know, Roosevelt
was the New York City Police Commissioner and cartoonist played on
this role. Did he appear like the policeman to the world, though?
