CHOICE Review

Though many books have been written on the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 and the role played by Woodrow Wilson, no one has systematically examined the impact of Wilsonian concepts of self-determination upon non-Western peoples. Manela (Harvard) fills this most-needed gap with this book that will undoubtedly be definitive. This excellent work focuses on four nations: Egypt, India, China, and Korea. Extremely thorough in his research, Manela has drawn upon archives located in Washington, London, Paris, and Taipei. Little wonder then that his references, both diplomatic correspondence and scholarly articles, are extremely thorough. Particularly incisive are his portraits of such nationalist leaders as V. K. Wellington Koo of China, Syngman Rhee of Korea, Sa'd Zaghlul of Egypt, and Mohandas Gandhi and Lala Lajpat Rai of India, as well as his treatment of the diplomacy conducted by Wilson, Colonel E. M. House, David Lloyd George, and Georges Clemenceau. Manela conclusively shows that Wilson, who had little interest in liberating colonial peoples, inadvertently planted among colonial peoples the seeds of national self-determination and disillusionment with a West that saw this concept applying to white peoples only. Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries. J. D. Doenecke New College of Florida
