These two political cartoons, "The Plumb-pudding in Danger" and "The Monroe Doctrine," focus on America's relationship with the major powers of Europe. In 1823, attempting to curtail European interference with emerging republics in Latin America, James Monroe issued the Monroe Doctrine. This policy, along with the subsequent Roosevelt Corollary of 1904, would largely guide American foreign policy for the next century.
