"Root's long-term significance is difficult to assess. Although no die-hard reactionary, he made the maintenance of order and stability his top priority. In foreign affairs, he stood for an internationalism that coupled recognition of U.S. responsibility to play a larger role in world affairs with a realistic understanding of the limits of the commitments that the United States could and should undertake. As such, he became the patron saint of the foreign policy elite that largely shaped the role of the United States in the world from the late 1930s through the Vietnam War. " - ANB. A beautiful set.
