Anglo-American Relations, America and World Politics

Fellow to write two articles on Anglo-American relations prior to World War II (1933-38). One of the major failures in international relations during this period was the inability or unwillingness of the U.S. and Great Britain to undertake cooperative efforts to counter German advances in Europe and/or Japanese advances in Asia. Fellow's research indicated that Roosevelt did make a number of overtures to the British, all of which were rejected and one of which touched off violent debate in the highest British councils and led to the resignation of Sir Anthony Eden as Foreign Secretary in February, 1938. Fellow to explore the failure in relations between these two countries whose national interests were so similar and the ramifications of that failure, leading ultimately to World War II. Fellow will also begin writing a book--"American Foreign Policy and World Politics, 1919-1941" based on research has been doing over the past seven years, an analysis of the major literature, or schools of thought, on American involvement in the origins of the Second World War.
