Containment at High Tide

(p.111) Chapter 4 Containment at High Tide
The Currents of War

Sidney Pash

University Press of Kentucky

Chapter 4, Containment at High Tide, considers how critical issues, from the fall 1937 Brussels Conference to the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, impacted containment. Particular attention is paid to the ongoing Sino-Japanese War, the outbreak of war in Europe, the sudden French collapse, Japan’s decision to join the Axis Alliance, and its occupation of Northern French Indochina. Chapter 4 also analyzes the evolution of containment during President Roosevelt’s second term in office and devotes special consideration to containment’s increasing militarization, especially after the fall of France, efforts to strengthen Anglo-American relations, and the application of ever-greater economic sanctions through the moral embargo, preclusive purchasing, and export control.
