Professor Perkins is the recognized authority on the history of the Monroe Doctrine, and in this book he has distilled the essence of a lifetime of scholarship. Though obviously intended primarily to give the general reader a comprehensive and comprehensible picture of the origins and growth of the Doctrine, it is equipped with some of the apparatus of the historian's trade in the form of notes and a bibliography.
