The Neutrality Act of 1935: An Inquiry into the Uses of History. Teacher and Student Manuals.
Scudder, Edson F.
This unit, geared initially for college-preparatory students at the high school level, asks the student to consider ways in which the past, however incompletely or inaccurately perceived, shapes our views of the present. Evidence is presented to show how both the isolationists and internationalists justified their actions by their interpretations of such things as the Neutrality Act of 1917, World War I, and the postwar reaction. Documents relating to the Nye Committee investigation and the rise of Fascism are used to show how the policy makers of 1935 responded to foreign and domestic pressures in their search for national security and world order.
