Reviews | Table of Contents

In his widely acclaimed To End All Wars, Thomas Knock provides an intriguing, often provocative narrative of Woodrow Wilson's epic quest for a new world order. The account follows Wilson's thought and diplomacy from his policy toward revolutionary Mexico, through his dramatic call for "Peace without Victory" in World War I, to the Senate's rejection of the League of Nations. Throughout Knock explores the place of internationalism in American politics, sweeping away the old view that isolationism was the cause of Wilson's failure and revealing the role of competing visions of internationalism--conservative and progressive.


"[This book] challenges virtually every recent historian who has tackled the subject. Knock demands that we see Wilson in a genuinely new framework and succeeds admirably."--Gary J. Ostrower, The American Historical Review

"Now that humanity is possibly drawing closer to ... [a] `Federation of the World,' To End All Wars is an enlightening and valuable introduction to the birth of that noble vision."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., The Times Literary Supplement


"Wilson, in his time and through his vocation, transformed the standard of legitimacy in government throughout the world. We are perhaps only beginning to see this and, with the help of Thomas Knock's important work, better understand it."--Senator Patrick Moynihan, author of On the Law of Nations

"A truly great book. It is simply superb in every way."--Senator George McGovern

"A superb, sympathetic account of the intellectual and political milieu surrounding Wilson's League of Nations."--Thomas G. Paterson, author of American Foreign Policy: A History
