FDR's Republicans: Domestic Political Realignment and American Foreign Policy 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, Jenner focuses on domestic components of the foreign policy debate, combining historical analysis and political theory.
