Domestic economic and military mobilization is well underway as this volume opens. Wilson, though heavily burdened, is determined to maintain oversight and, in many cases, control over the organization of the war effort and the conduct of diplomacy. While Congress debates the Lever food and fuel control bill, he rallies his friends to defeat an amendment establishing a congressional Joint Committee on Expenditures in the Conduct of the War.

During this period Wilson deals with strikes of copper miners and recurrent threats of logging strikes in the Northwest. Troubled and embarrassed by the arrest and imprisonment of National Woman's Party picketers of the White House, he pardons the prisoners and begins a quiet campaign for a federal suffrage amendment. When Postmaster General Burleson uses the Espionage Act to deny mailing privileges to The Masses, Wilson attempts to intervene, and he orders investigations in other cases of alleged civil liberties violations.

At Wilson's virtual ultimatum, the British government organizes a full scale convoy system. In June the President persuades Secretary McAdoo to make emergency loans to the British. Wilson adamantly refuses to accept Japanese claims to a "paramount" interest in China. As the volume ends, he is at work on a reply to the Pope, who has suggested his own peace plan only two weeks after the proposals of the German moderates.
