Overview

In examining public debate over foreign policy in the United States between the outbreak of World War II and America's entry into the war, Schneider focuses on Chicago, a major metropolitan area that encompasses virtually every major interest group found in the nation. Analyzing opinion and activity among these groups, he reveals how widely the controversy raged and how foreign policy considerations cut across other interests. The debate splintered public opinion at the very moment when unity was most needed.

Originally published in 1989.
