9780393018677: Wilson and His Peacemakers: American Diplomacy at the Paris Peace Conference, 1919
From Library Journal:

In 1919, the victorious powers of World War I, democracies all, met in Paris to construct a peace which, it was hoped, would last for generations. Woodrow Wilson was the first President to travel across the Atlantic while in office, and his reasons for such a break with tradi tion were formidable: he wished to write a charter for a new world order creating a permanent and equitable peace. While nominally a book about the U.S. role in the conference, Walworth's study un avoidably covers the conference as a whole, and does so admirably. The large cast of characters is more than ade quately fleshed out, as are explanations of Wilson's naivete, the difficulties of diplomatic negotiations within a demo cratic framework, reasons for ultimate withdrawal by the United States, and the resultant vacuum in European af fairs. This is likely to be the definitive study of the Paris Peace Conference. Jeff Northrup, Birmingham P.L.
