at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919
First US edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 15.5cm, xiv + 442pp.
The year 1919 marks a high point in the world power and prestige of Western democracy. World War I was ended, and the victory belonged to the democratic states. Theirs was the sober task-and the unique opportunity-of formulating a settlement that would guarantee impartial justice and preserve the peace. Dr. Tillman examines here the documentary account of Anglo-American diplomatic relations during this critical period. He shows the interaction of personalities in both governments, the patterns of cooperation and conflict as they negotiated major issues of war and of peace, and the political repercussions in both England and America that led either to compromise or to defeat of some of the best purposes of the Versailles Treaty.
The book is in very good condition, the dustwrapper quite heavily sun-faded to the top, spine and fore-edge
