The World War and American Isolation, 1914-1917

By Ernest R. May.

Harvard University Press, 1959, 482 pp.

A very good and scholarly account of the circumstances that led to the entry of the United States into the First World War. While the subject is a familiar one, Mr. May's particular contribution is in following the interplay of American, British and German policies in the years 1914-1917.
