Woodrow Wilson and the Rebirth of Poland, 1914-1920

By Louis L. Gerson

Yale University Press, 1953, 166 pp.

The author's aim is "to show how the patriotic leaders of the movement for a new Polish nation worked on President Wilson through the Polish immigrant population of the United States, and the Polish-American vote, to secure the rebirth of Poland." Feeling such pressures to be of questionable value for the American national interest, the author shows little sympathy for the Polish position, which he often depicts in a one-sided fashion.
