Herbert Hoover and World Peace summarizes Hoover's career-long efforts to preserve peace in the world and to help America avoid unnecessary wars, from his opposition to our entry into World War I to his proposed — and rejected — Cold War strategy, which would have avoided the Vietnam War. Personal experiences in the Boxer Rebellion in China and helping to feed Belgium during World War I, coupled with his early Quaker nurture, that sensitized him to war-related tragedies. These essays illustrate the varied ways in which Hoover expressed and implemented his commitment to world peace, as humanitarian, advisor, cabinet member, president, citizen, and writer. No other president was so consistent and thoughtful on matters of world peace.
