Bibliographical Notes

The references cited bear most directly on the subjects of the essays and are usually representative of a larger literature. Most of the sources cited contain further bibliographical references.


Chapter 1
ON TWENTIETH-CENTURY ISOLATIONISM

There is no general study of twentieth-century isolationism, particularly of its ideas, but for the general background of nineteenth- century isolation there are three fundamental studies. The latest is Albert K. Weinberg, "The Historical Meaning of the American Doctrine of Isolation," American Political Science Review, XXXIV ( April, 1940), 539-547 J. Fred Rippy wrote two monographs, America and the Strife of Europe ( Chicago, 1938) and, with Angie Debo , "The Historical Background of the American Policy of Isolation," Smith College Studies in History, IX, Nos. 3 and 4 ( Northampton, Mass., April and July, 1924). William L. Langer in "Diplomatic Isolation," Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences, VIII, 3 52)-3 55) has placed isolation in a world-wide diplomatic context. Thomas A. Bailey in The Man in the Street ( New York, 1948) has several chapters on the "roots" and "fruits" of isolationism and Thomas I. Cook and Malcolm Moos in Power through Purpose: The Realism of Idealism as a Basis for Foreign Policy ( Baltimore, 1954) analyze isolationism in broad general terms and equate isolation with "insulationism."

A book which covers isolationism in a large setting is Foster Rhea Dulles , America's Rise to World Power: 1898-1954 ( New York, 1955), and another which deals with isolationism and ideas is Robert
