Summary
"The inward-looking, isolationist tendencies of the United States as it emerged from the first World War may give the impression of a country vastly different from the outward-looking incipient superpower that began to materialize during WWII. As it transitioned from economic depression to international prominence under the steady hand of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the United States slowly carved out a place for itself on the world stage. Seminal documents and personal accounts are interspersed with historical narrative in this enthralling volume, which chronicles the political and social history of the United States in the aftermath of one world war through its engagement in another."--Publisher description
