Since their first publication, the four volumes of the Cambridge History of American Foreign Relations have served as the definitive source for the topic, from the colonial period to the Cold War. This revised third volume describes how the United States became a global power - economically, culturally, and militarily - during the period from 1913 to 1945, from the inception of Woodrow Wilson's presidency to the end of the Second World War. The author also discusses global transformations, from the period of the First World War when the process of economic globalization that began in the nineteenth century was seriously disrupted, through the 1920s when efforts were made to restore the world economy and to establish a new international order, followed by the disastrous years of depression, totalitarianism, and war during the 1930s, to the end of the Second World War. Throughout the book, the themes of Americanization of the world and the transformation of the United States provide the background for understanding the emergence of a transnational world in the second half of the twentieth century.
