A Diplomatic History of the United States
A Diplomatic History of the United States
By Samuel Flagg Bemis
Holt, 1936, 881 pp

This scholarly study, the result of patient research, is the most comprehensive single volume on the subject. The emphasis is naturally on the recent period -- half the book dealing with the last forty years. Professor Bemis does not hesitate to pronounce judgment on what he considers mistakes of American statesmanship. There are numerous well-designed maps.
