American Diplomacy in the Great Depression
American Diplomacy in the Great Depression
By Robert H. Ferrell
Yale University Press, 1957, 319 pp.

The author of a volume on the origins of the Kellogg-Briand Pact ("Peace in Their Time," noted here January 1953) continues his study of American diplomacy into the unsettling and bewildering years of the depression, 1929-1933. He finds American assumptions and policies inadequate, in part the result of the "triumph of events over intelligence."
