FDR's Republicans illuminates the debate over foreign policy that took place in the United States prior to World War II. Robert E. Jenner approaches this issue from the perspective of Republican members of the House and Senate, who eventually came to support the interventionist position of a Democratic president. Unlike other diplomatic histories of this period, FDR's Republicans focuses on domestic components of the foreign policy debate, combining historical analysis and political theory. Jenner recounts the Republican Party's internationalist roots under McKinley, the split of 1912, and the defeat of the League of Nations in deference to its agrarian progressive wing. Taking both a local and national approach, he provides in-depth analysis of the party's reaction to the FDR landslides of 1932 and 1936, the party's resurgence in 1938, FDR's aggressive defense of the New Deal, and the decline of the party's agrarian progressive faction. The result is a broader explanation of the battle that raged between isolationists and interventionists as well as the failure of policy makers to deter fascism at an earlier date.

About the Author:

Robert E. Jenner earned a PhD in diplomatic history at the University of Maryland at College Park.

He currently works as a professional guest speaker with over 50 appearances in the past year. He has written on the subjects of decolonization in Zimbabwe and the foreign policy of Grover Cleveland.

Review:

By analyzing the milieu of factors influencing the Republican Party during its years as a political outcast, the New Deal era, Robert Jenner has charted a fresh path on a road well traveled. This excellent study reminds us of both the primacy of domestic politics in the formation of foreign affairs and the need for bipartisanship and pragmatism in the defense of freedom. The moral of Jenner's story resonates today. (J. Brooks Flippen, author of Nixon and the Environmentand Conservative Conservationist)
