Description

Reviews

The struggle over President Franklin D. Roosevelt's foreign policy from 1939 to 1941 was one of the most bitter in all American history. This anthology presents the arguments against cash-and-carry, conscription, lend-lease, extending the term of draftees, arming merchant ships, sending convoys across the Atlantic, and economic sanctions on Japan. It also covers the general worldview of many American anti-interventionists, including their perceptions of the major belligerents, the issue of a negotiated peace, limits on presidential powers, domestic consequences of American entry into war and military and economic strategies for the nation's survival.

"This modest but fascinating collection in the Anvil Series introduced and compiled by Justus Doenecke should be on the shelf of anyone interested in American attitudes (and ambivalences) towards war and peace in the 20th century." -- Nigel Young, The Colgate Scene, January 1998.

 "… these selections give undergraduate students a useful starting point for the anti-interventionist movement, raising questions about the assumptions that shape American foreign policy to this day." -- J. A. McCartin, SUNY College at Genesco, Choice, Vol. 35 No. 11/12, July/August 1998.
