d. President Roosevelt’s heavy-handed intervention in the Panamanian revolt and the conclusion of the Hay-Pauncefote Treaty caused the governments of Central America and Latin America, such as Colombia, to resent the United States and its callous disregard for self-determination. e. Correct answer. President Roosevelt’s aggressive involvement and active support for the Panamanian revolt and the American construction and control of the Panama Canal increased anti-American sentiment throughout Latin America because it reflected an egregious interference with Panamanian sovereignty by the United States that other Latin American nations feared would be duplicated as the president extended his Big Stick across Latin America in pursuit of economic and geopolitical dominance. Question 14 a. Correct answer. Diplomatic relations between the United States and Russia deteriorated after President Roosevelt negotiated a conclusion to the Russo- Japanese War because the Russians felt that President Roosevelt had denied Russia an impending military victory over Japan. U.S.-Japan diplomatic relations suffered a setback because Japan felt cheated out of its due financial compensation in the final settlement terms of the Russo-Japanese peace treaty concluded by the mediation of President Roosevelt. b. President Roosevelt received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for his diplomatic accomplishment. c. Japan felt cheated out of its due financial compensation for dropping its demands for a cash indenmity from Russia. d. Russia accused President Roosevelt of robbing it of an impending military victory over Japan by cementing a diplomatic settlement between the two warring nations, at a point when Russia asserted they regained the military advantage. e. Correct answer. The dislocations and tax burdens caused by the Russo- Japanese War sparked a massive new wave of Japanese immigrants seeking work in California, which did not abate as a result of President Roosevelt’s settlement of the Russo-Japanese war in 1905. The continued influx of Japanese immigrant laborers into California ignited a serious international crisis when San Francisco authorities segregated Chinese, Japanese, and Korean students in a special school in the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. President Roosevelt defused the international crisis in 1907–1908 by convincing Californians to repeal the discriminatory school order in exchange for accepting a secret understanding, the so-called Gentlemen’s Agreement, with Japan to halt the flow of Japanese laborers to the United States by witholding their passports.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
