A comprehensive analysis of American foreign policy and Mussolini's
Italy. Schmitz argues that the U.S. desire for order, interest in
Open Door trade, and concern about left-wing revolution led
American policymakers to welcome Mussolini's coming to power and to
support fascism in Italy for most of the interwar period.
