A resource and reference compilation, this book presents for the first time the collected editorials Taft produced under contract for the Philadelphia, Public Ledger from November 1, 1917 through July 5, 1921. These syndicated editorials contain his reactions to U.S. participation and policy during World War I, the Paris peace settlement, the League of Nations controversy, and the national elections of 1918 and 1920. This reference and resource compilation casts Taft in a new light than previously depicted by assuming that the material integrated into historical accounts has been poorly recognized information.
