Works[edit]

Reviews[edit]

The United States' vision of a proper world order after World War II was a distinctive blend of realism and liberalism, pragmatism and idealism. This book by a young historian provides a rich and original account of the architects of the postwar global system and their ideas. Borgwardt argues that Franklin Roosevelt's planners brought to their task notions of security, justice, and governance forged within the United States during the New Deal and, in doing so, launched the human rights revolution that has reshaped today's world.[25]

Borgwardt’s interpretation thus rests on a conventional reading of the intentions and accomplishments of the New Deal and on a more original interpretation of the intentions and accomplishments of American foreign policy during and immediately after World War II. By her lights, the New Deal was an effort by liberals led by FDR not only to save capitalism from itself and to provide Americans with relief from the devastating economic crisis of the Great Depression but also, and above all, to put into place a set of government regulatory institutions that would provide for long-term social and economic security.[26]
