Using Turkey as a case study, Stillwell (history, U. of Texas- Arlington) argues that the League of Nations failed to understand the emergence of what in the 1960s came to be called the Third World. He also produces documents to support the widespread assertion that British policies in all areas were driven by imperial ambitions. He contends that because the British Empire was the world's only superpower during the period 1918-39, and the US declined to join the League, that international body was largely dominated by British interests; and that the several crises that surrounded the establishment of the international borders of Turkey illustrate that domination.
