Summary Over the past 10 years, the study of American diplomacy between the end of World War I and Franklin D. Roosevelt's declaration of war in 1941 has experienced a renaissance of sorts, as evidenced by the publication of a wealth of new studies. In light of this resurgence, From Isolation to War: 1931-1941 has been thoroughly updated to incorporate much of this new research. --
The fourth edition of this popular American History Series volume includes new material on the Washington Conference of 1921-1922, American attitudes during the Spanish Civil War, Roosevelt's policies toward Jewish refugees, the Welles mission of 1940, and much more. Also new to this edition are nine biographical sketches of U.S. and world leaders, including FDR, Hoover, Churchill, Hitler, and Stalin. As the most up-to-date and comprehensive study of American diplomacy in the lead-up to World War II, the new edition of this landmark work will be embraced by teachers, students, and scholars alike. --Book Jacket.
