Moral Purpose in Foreign Policy: Realities and Illusions
Kenneth W. Thompson

Social Research: An International Quarterly

Arien Mack, Editor

Volume 27, No. 2 (Summer 1960): 261:276

EXCERPT: Americans in the period between the two world wars were often exhorted to seek world peace through international law and novel world institutions. In the aftermath of World War I many loyal and responsible persons felt a deep sense of shame and guilt. While Woodrow Wilson had been the prophet of world law and order, the Senate, after his return from the Paris Peace Conference, repudiated the League of Nations. The generation that included the nationï¾’s intellectual leaders, among them such men as Nicholas Murray Butler and James Shotwell, called for rededication to world organization and effective world law. Their resolve and conviction and that of many others paved the way for American sponsorship of the United Nations and a new International Court.
