XVI. Isolationism and War 1921 - 1945

1. President Franklin Roosevelt was naïve and ineffective in his conduct of foreign

policy from 1933 and 1941. To what extent and in what ways do you agree or

disagree with this statement. (71)

2. The term “isolationism “ does not adequately describe the reality of either United

States foreign policy or America’s relationships with other nations during the period

from Washington’s Farewell Address 1796 to 1940. Assess the validity of this

generalization. (76)

3. War has frequently had unexpected consequences for the United States foreign

policy but has seldom resulted in major reorientations of policy. Discuss with

reference to the First and Second world wars giving about equal attention to each.

4. Prior to American involvement in both the First and Second World Wars, the United

States adopted an official policy of neutrality. Compare the policy and its

modifications during the period 1914-17 to the policy and its modifications during

1939-41. (82)
5. Between 1776 and 1823 a young and weak United States achieved considerable

success in foreign policy when confronted with the two principal European powers,

Great Britain and France. Between 1914 and 1950, however, a far more powerful

United States was less successful in achieving its foreign policy objectives in Europe.

Discuss by comparing United States foreign policy in Europe during the period 1776

1823, with United States policy in Europe during ONE of the following periods:

1914 – 1932 OR 1933 -1950. (77)
6. To what extent and why did the United States adopt an isolationist policy in the

1920’s and 1930’s? (98)
