From the Back Cover:

This book offers an ambitious reinterpretation of the U.S. Senate's rejection of the Versailles treaty, the first of the 'great debates' over the role of the United States in world politics.

Review:

"There has been a gap in the subject [of American involvement in the founding of the League of Nations] which Lloyd E. Ambrosius has now filled with his lucid and comprehensive narrative. On the basis of quite remarkably extensive research in private papers as well as published sources, Ambrosius traces the story of the League from Wilson's adoption of the ideal while America was still neutral through the Paris peace conference and the proceedings of the Senate to the election of 1920 which, as Ambrosius convincingly shows, represented the emphatic repudiation of Wilson and his League." John A. Thompson in the Times Higher Education Supplement

"Lloyd E. Ambrosius offers an ambitious reinterpretation of the U.S. Senate's rejection of the Versailles treaty, the first of the 'great debates' over the role of the United States in world politics. Ambrosius is most successful in clarifying the day-to-day politics of the treaty fight, especially the manoeuvres of Lodge and his minions. This aspect guarantees the utility of Woodrow Wilson and the American Diplomatic Tradition to historians of Wilson and the First World War." David F. Trask, International History Review
