FROM NEUTRALITY TO WAR

Topic: Economics
Instructor: Linda Spencer
Method: Online (PDS)
Location: ECPD

Course Description:

The question of how involved the United States should become in the European war deeply divided the country.  On the one hand, Roosevelt and the so-called "internationalists" claimed that a program of aid to Great Britain and other countries fighting against Germany would make actual U.S. Participation in the war unnecessary.  On the other side stood those who were called "isolationists," who believed that the President's policies were making it increasingly likely that the country would end up in another disastrous foreign war.  This debate was still raging when Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.  At this point it was clear that, like it or not, the United States would be a full participant in the Second World War.
