The United States and World Order: From the League of Nations to the United Nations

The project will examine the various concepts of world order espoused by the American people during the first three decades of the twentieth century, utilizing various archival materials in the United States. Taking up as examples ideas such as the League of Nations,. World Court, outlawry of war and disarmament, the study will examine how the American people perceived the outside world, the means and ends of international relations, the American past, and the role of the United States in world politics, and uncover some basic assumptions behind the American pursuit of peace and world order. Tensions between unilateral and collective approaches, and between the ideas of peace through compromise and peace through deterrence, will serve as the framework of analysis.
