Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The great virtue of this book—and Costigliola desrves congratulations for it— is the intensive use and careful evaluation of new materials. It has intelligent, often acute comments about arms limitation, reparations, and the Kellogg-Briand pact. . . . This is a fine piece of research by a scholar from whom much will be heard."—International History Review

"This is a subtle and imaginative contribution to the increasingly accepted view that American foreign relations in the 1920s do not fit a clownish, isolationist stereotype. The author succeeds in going beyond the formal actions of governments to deal with the ambivalent response to American culture and economic power."—Foreign Affairs

"Costigliola's book is required reading for all serious students of American-European relations from Versailles to 1933."—The Historian
