This third volume of an important series emphasizes especially the effect of the policies of the Roosevelt Administration upon the international relations of the United States. The authors discuss such important topics as the recognition of Russia, the Cuban revolution, the Disarmament Conference in Geneva, the Economic Conference in London, the Pan-American Conference in Montevideo, the warfare in South America and the Far East, and the international problems created by tariffs, exchange control, silver, foreign debts and the gold standard. The whole is interpreted in an introduction by Walter Lippmann, who also had general supervision of the book's preparation. An appendix of documentary and statistical material makes it an invaluable reference work.
