to Build One World

Join CGS's first Q&A Global Conversations online event, Saturday, April 22 from 12-1:30 EST with Samuel Zipp to discuss his book, The Idealist: Wendell Willkie’s Wartime Quest to Build One World.

In August 1942 as the threat of fascism swept the world, a charismatic former Republican presidential contender, Wendell Willkie, challenged Americans to resist the “America first” doctrine and warned of the dangers of “narrow nationalism”. He urged citizens to end colonialism and embrace “equality of opportunity for every race and every nation”.

Zipp argues that Willkie’s “warnings about the perils of racially charged ‘narrow nationalism’ have never been more indispensable. As the United States reaches the end of its long turn as a great global power, the quandaries of American exceptionalism he faced remain ours today, and his example may yet offer us undiscovered resources for living in a ‘one world’ he heralded more than three-quarters of a century ago.”
