Interrelationship Between Reform Movements, War, Foreign Relations and Civil Liberties: 1890s-1960s

Study of the interrelationship between American reform movements, war, foreign relations, and civil liberties in the period between the 1890s and the 1960s, with particular attention to the anti-imperialists of the 1890s and the critics of the Vietnam war in the 1960s. From the late 19th century to the present, there has been a similarity in critics' ideas about the detrimental effects of war and foreign involvement on domestic reform, civil liberties, and the traditional principles of self determination and independence. Fellow has published similar studies of the progressive reformers from 1900 to World War I (California Historical Society Quarterly, December, 1968) and of the isolationsists in the 1930s (The Nation, September, 1969).
