Toward an Entangling Alliance: American Isolationism, Internationalism, and Europe, 1901-1950

Synopsis

Powaski's study analyzes why the United States, conceived with a dedication to peace, individual freedom, and opportunity, pursued a policy of political and military isolationism toward Europe, and how the upheavals of the 20th century necessitated the abandonment of this policy by 1950. A chronological approach to the topic identifies the origins of isolationism in colonial idealism, and traces the factors, events, and personalities which forced the United States to reevaluate its international position and ultimately reaffirm its original ideals through continuing involvement in world peace organizations.
