In his widely acclaimed "To End All Wars, " Thomas Knock provides an intriguing, often provocative narrative of Woodrow Wilson's epic quest for a new world order. The account follows Wilson's thought and diplomacy from his policy toward revolutionary Mexico, through his dramatic call for "Peace without Victory" in World War I, to the Senate's rejection of the League of Nations. Throughout Knock explores the place of internationalism in American politics, sweeping away the old view that isolationism was the cause of Wilson's failure and revealing the role of competing visions of internationalism--conservative and progressive.

Winner of the Warren F. Kuehl Prize, Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations "[This book] challenges virtually every recent historian who has tackled the subject. Knock demands that we see Wilson in a genuinely new framework and succeeds admirably."--Gary J. Ostrower, The American Historical Review "Now that humanity is possibly drawing closer to ... [a] 'Federation of the World,' To End All Wars is an enlightening and valuable introduction to the birth of that noble vision."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., The Times Literary Supplement
