1917. A collection of Lodge's speeches delivered before the Senate and other audiences during the two-year period between 1915-1917. A conservative Republican Representative and Senator from Massachusetts, Lodge formed a close alliance with Theodore Roosevelt. Despite his reputation as a conservative Lodge was by no means isolationist. In favor of war with Spain, Lodge also favored the acquisition of the Philippines. Suspicious and contemptuous of Wilson's peace policies, Lodge welcomed U.S. involvement in the First World War, while remaining (as chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations) highly critical of Wilson's prosecution of the war. Contents: Mexico; Force and Peace; France; Address at the Unveiling of the Soldiers' Monument; American Rights; National Defense; Armed Merchantmen; Washington's Policies of Neutrality and National Defense; Address at the Opening and Dedication of the New Buildings of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Address at the Unveiling of the Lafayette Statue; The Policies of the Present Administration; Speech Before the Harvard Republican Club; The Peace Not of the President; Address at the Celebration of the One Hundredth Anniversary of St. John's Church; The President's Plan for a World Peace; On the Severance of Diplomatic Relations with Germany; The Failure of the Executive to Vindicate American Rights; and War with Germany.
