Editorial Reviews


"Extraordinarily usefulâ There is certainly much the reader will learn from each of the fifteen chapters gathered together in this well-balanced volume." -- Michael Cox,
English Historical Review

"Stimulating...The controversial nature of some of the contributions and the divergences among the authors on certain issues (for example, whether U.S. entry into the war dramatically transformed it) may make the collection useful for stimulating discussion....The essays are also valuable for the
ways they address neglected topics, sketch the state of current scholarship, and promote rethinking of the waging, meanings, and effects of World War I. The collection is enhanced by a useful timeline and an excellent, up-to-date bibliography."--Robert Foglesong,
Journal of American History

"Scholars and general readers alike will benefit from these essays, which clearly demonstrate that the Great War left global legacies that still shape world history in the twenty-first century."--Lloyd Ambrosius,

"This excellent collection of essays presents an overview of recent historiography regarding the legacies of the Great War with particular focus on the United States' involvement....Scholars and general readers alike will benefit from these essays, which clearly demonstrate that the Great War left
global legacies that still shape world history in the twenty-first century."--Lloyd Ambrosius,

"We are anything but 'Beyond 1917,' and for that reason, this volume is a welcome addition to the historical literature on the catastrophe we call the First World War. Told from many angles, this account of World War I and its aftermath is timely and disturbing in equal parts."--Jay Winter, editor
The Cambridge History of the First World War

"This superb collection of essays probes the consequences of US involvement in the First World War. It is hard to imagine a more bracing range of perspectives than these distinguished scholars provide--on the impact of belligerency on American citizenship and religion, on humanitarian endeavor on
the battlefield, on the demands of diplomacy in responding to revolution in the midst of war, on the beginning of the collapse of a global system based on empires. Together they demonstrate that the wake of the catastrophe born of the nineteenth century has not ceased churning even in the
twenty-first century."--Thomas J. Knock, author of
To End All Wars: Woodrow Wilson and the Quest for a New World Order

"A fascinating collection of diverse perspectives on the American experience of World War One and its global repercussions."--David Reynolds, author of
The Long Shadow: The Great War and the Twentieth Century
