Excerpt from Mexico and the Caribbean
The chapters in this volume were first given as addresses during the Conference upon Mexico and the Caribbean, at Clark University, May 20, 21 and 22, 1920. This was the seventh Conference upon International Relations held at the University. First organized in 1909, they met annually until the outbreak of the world war, after which they were discontinued until the present year.
The aim of the University in organizing these sessions has been to do its part in bringing about a more intelligent understanding of our international problems, a more sympathetic appreciation of the attitude of other peoples, and a keener realization of our own international duties. In presenting the various and different sides of international questions, and in emphasizing the points of view held by others, which are often different from the popular views held among ourselves, the University believes that it is fulfilling an obligation which it owes not only to its own students but to the wider community of which it is a part.
If democracy is to control foreign relations, it has been well said that democracy should know something about the subject. And what more helpful service, along this line, can a University render than to bring together a large group of experts upon some foreign country, or closely connected group of countries, men who represent not only our own but other lands, owners and organizers of big business enterprises, missionaries, educators, investigators, authors, past and present government officials - and give them a forum from which to present the facts, as they see them, and a recommendation of a national policy based upon these facts?
Since the world war has ceased to dominate our thought and focus our entire attention upon Europe, it is now possible to study the international relations of our own hemisphere, the most important of which are those connected with the two closely related fields which were chosen for this Conference, Mexico and the Caribbean.
