Volume 3 describes the history of the foreign relations of the United States during 1913-1945, the period of two world wars as well as of momentous changes that brought to an end the period of European domination. The United States emerged as the key global power, actively participating in wars but also promoting trade and investment activities throughout the world, as well as 'Americanising' other countries' ways of life and habits of thought. The book is thus not a usual survey of foreign policy decisions but tells a story about America's growing involvement in all parts of the world and in all aspects of twentieth-century life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Akira Iriye's Globalizing of America is a splendid survey of a complicated period. In masterful fashion, it explains how the United States became a dominant power in Europe and in Asia. It is thorough, judicious, and original." Ernest May, Harvard University
"Happily, the new, four-volume Cambridge History of American Foreign Relations provides an opportunity to scan the past two centuries for indications of the shape of foreign policy in the post-Cold War world. Each of the four books stands on its own. Each offers a clear overview of a particular period written by a distinguished historian drawing on a considerable body of research, itself the product of decades of scholarly endeavor. None is simply a chronicle of events." World Policy Journal
"These books can be read together, or, thanks to fairly broad and overlapping introductory chapters, they can be read as discrete volumes. They will certainly make an impact on the profession." Canadian Journal of History
"...elegant survey of the formative years of American global preeminence, 1913-1945....Iriye offers a provocative analysis of the American contribution to defining the concept of 'normalcy' in international relations....[Iriye] has been at the forefront of the cultural movement in international history....Akira Iriye's essay is a clear and insightful introduction to the period that shaped the one we live in today." Timothy Naftali, Boston Book Review
