The conclusions of this monograph are that "The United States went to war with Germany because it passed a moral judgment on her behavior, because it insisted upon a broad interpretation of neutral rights, and because after developing a huge economic interest in one side, it lacked an economic deterrent to going to war with the other." Certain omissions in the bibliography throw doubt on the author's thoroughness.
