KIRKUS REVIEW

A chronicle, day by day, of the killing of the League, of the political chicanary and embroilment, debate and deadlock which was levied-largely with personal animus against Wilson and his attempt to put internationalism into practice. Here are the manoeuvers and machinations with which Lodge, T.R., Borah and others stalled the Fourteen Points, the United States entry into the League and achieved their isolationist ends in spite of popular and press protest -- and at the expense of Wilson who lost his last fight...In far too great political detail for the general reader -- less popular than Bailey's Woodrow Wilson and the Great Betrayal or Bonsal's Unfinished Business or Bell's Woodrow Wilson and the People. The specific focus on the process of ""killing the peace"" is of course a natural limitation which perhaps makes comparisons to these other recent publications unfair, from a scholarly angle.
