Abstract
This study examines American diplomatic policy towards East Asia during the presidency of William Howard Taft. The author makes extensive use of popular journals and newspapers to trace the development of Taft's effort to bolster the Open Door in China through the infusion of American investments into that nation. The study also examines the American response to Japanese and Chinese immigration in this period and the nation’s policies towards the Chinese Revolution of 1911.
