Book description

In this new work, one of the world's leading historians of US foreign relations, Lloyd E.Ambrosius, addresses enduring questions about American political culture and statecraft by focusing on President Woodrow Wilson and the United States in international relations during and after World War I. Updated to include recent historiography as well as an original introduction and conclusion, Woodrow Wilson and American Internationalism features nine different essays closely linked together by the themes of Wilson's understanding of Americanism, his diplomacy to create a new world order in the wake of World War I, and the legacy of his foreign policy. Examining the exclusive as well as universal dimensions of Wilsonianism, Ambrosius assesses not only Wilson's role during his presidency but also his legacy in defining America's place in world history. Speaking to the transnational turn in American history, Ambrosius shows how Wilson's liberal internationalist vision of a new world order would shape US foreign relations for the next century.

Reviews

‘This collection of essays once again underscores Ambrosius's rank as one of the foremost modern Wilson scholars. Readers will benefit from the author's mastery of issues and from his critical yet judicious assessment of one of the most influential presidents in American history.'

Manfred Berg - Heidelberg University, Germany

‘This collection of essays from a leading historian of Woodrow Wilson's foreign policies refracts Wilson's leadership through a variety of lenses, including The Birth of a Nation, the League of Nations, the Armenian issue, and twenty-first century US military interventions. Ambrosius's assessments of the racist underbelly of Wilsonian liberalism and the Wilsonian conviction that US security rested on the promotion of liberal democracies are highly relevant to our own time.'

Kristin Hoganson - University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign

‘Drawing on decades of research as well as recent trends in the historiography of international relations, this collection of articles by Ambrosius skillfully explains the deeply flawed character of ‘Wilsonianism,' analyzing in particular its racist and chauvinistic dimensions. Anyone interested in Wilson as well as US foreign policy today should read this timely and important book.'

Ross A. Kennedy - Illinois State University
