Kís Foreign Policy Sources: [name removed by request 7/6/07]

Schulzinger, Robert D.U.S. Diplomacy Since 1900.Oxford University Press, Inc.New York, 1998.(UCSB call# E744.S399.)

Schulzinger describes the american foreign policy from the turn of the century, through the First World War, the Isolationist Policy, the Second World War, through post-Cold War issues. The author remains detached and tries to focus on stating the facts of American foreign policy in order to examine it objectively.For my subject, I particularly utilized sources on American foreign policy from 1920-1941.Reasons are stated and the aftermath of World War I is discussed, as well as the Isolationist Policy of the 1930ís.The events leading directly up to World War II and Americanís entrance into the war are also portrayed.

This site provides articles and information relative to the American Isolationist Policy which was adopted after the First World War and carried through the time of the Holocaust and up until the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Sponsored by PBS, this website offers more links and information to the American experience during the Holocaust which may provide more insight into the United Statesí adhesion to domestic political policies rather than morally obligatory affairs.

Described U.S. Foreign Policy from 1920-1940.This site outlines the acts proposed and passed, and the events that occurred and led up to the United Statesí involvement in the Second World War.
