Discoloration inside boards, pencil underlining in margins of several pages. Cover wear. Thomas Andrew Bailey (December 14, 1902 – July 26, 1983) was a professor of history at his alma mater, Stanford University, and authored many historical monographs on diplomatic history, including the widely used American history textbook, The American Pageant. He was known for his wit and clever terms he coined, such as "international gangsterism." He popularized diplomatic history with his entertaining textbooks and lectures. Bailey contended foreign policy was significantly affected by public opinion, and that current policy makers could learn from history. Perhaps the harshest attack on Wilson's to diplomacy came from Bailey in two books that remain widely cited by scholars, Woodrow Wilson and the Lost Peace and Woodrow Wilson and the Great Betrayal, Bailey: contended that Wilson's wartime isolationism, as well as his peace proposals at war's end, were seriously flawed. Highlighting the fact that American delegates encountered staunch opposition to Wilson's proposed League of Nations, Bailey concluded that the president and his diplomatic staff essentially sold out, compromising American ideals to secure mere fragments of Wilson's progressive vision. While Bailey primarily targeted Wilson in these critiques, others did not emerge unscathed. His works remain noteworthy for the care with which Bailey systematically overturned myths about U.S. diplomatic history by reexamination of the underlying sources.
