The literature on the United States and the origins of the Second World War continues to grow as new records (especially those of the British and French governments) become available and as perspectives change and historians search out new problems. Literature published prior to 1957 has been succinctly reviewed in the first selection in this volume by Wayne S. Cole. The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library has published a valuable annotated compendium, The Era of Franklin D. Roosevelt: A Selected Bibliography of Periodical and Dissertation Literature, 1945-1966 ( Hyde Park, N.Y., 1967). The bibliography that follows includes some of the more important works on American, and related European and Far Eastern, foreign policy that have appeared between 1957 and 1969. (Works appearing in whole or in part in this volume are not listed below.)

Divine, The Reluctant Belligerent: American Entry into World War II ( New York, 1965), Jean-Baptiste Duroselle, From Wilson to Roosevelt: Foreign Policy of the United States, 1913-1945 ( Cambridge, Mass., 1963), Denna F.
