American Int/Policies-Mid Eas CB

Denovo, "American Int/Policies-Mid Eas CB"
Publisher: University of Minnesota Press | 1963 | ISBN 0816603022 | PDF | 460 pages | 25.4 MB

Scholars concerned with the diplomatic history of the United States have largely neglected the subject of American relations with the Middle East during the four decades before World War I. With this study, Professor DeNovo fills the gap by describing and assessing the United States cultural, economic, and diplomatic relations with Turkey, Persia, and the Arab East in that period. He traces, chronologically and topically, the activities of such American interest groups as Protestant missionaries, educators, philanthropists, archaeologists, businessmen, and technical advisers, as well as the official actions of their government. The account falls roughly into three chronological periods. The first section traces the interest groups through the pre-World War I years of political and cultural stirring in the Ottoman Empire and Persia. Special attention is given to the Chester Project for railroad development in Turkey. The second part deals with the upheavals accompanying World War I and the tasks of peacemaking from the Mudros armistice through the Lausanne settlement of 1923. The latter chapters detail the rise of the Turkish national movement, the deepening Persian and Arab nationalism, and the accommodation of American cultural and economic groups to these conditions. The author points out that before World War II began, Americans had acquired a significant interest in Middle Eastern oil and had become emotionally involved in the Arab-Zionist tension. In 1939 the United States was on the verge of a new phase in its Middle Eastern relations when that region would become more intimately linked to America national security.

This is the first comprehensive general reference on the major American interest groups. It provides vital information on the lobbies and special interest groups that dominate American politics today, and on the reasons for their power. Introduced by an informative overview covering the historical, legal, and political framework in which interest groups operate, the Encyclopedia describes thirteen recognized categories of interest groups in signed articles by experts in each area. Immediately following each article are A-Z entries on all the major interest groups in that category – 172 entries in all. Each entry includes the name of the organization; membership and budget statistics; tables of donations to candidates in the 1996 and 1998 elections; the group's history and general legislative interests; its major successes and failures, and its lobbying activities. Appendices list the major interest groups in different categories ranked by donations, membership size, and budget, and are cross-referenced to the main entries. Lists of top officials and contact information and addresses are also included, along with a detailed bibliography and index.

The Mine Wars brings to life the decades-long struggle that turned the coalfields of southern West Virginia into a blood-soaked war zone where basic constitutional rights and freedoms were violently contested.
