These three volumes cover Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first administration, 1933–1937. The documents relating to foreign affairs during his first administration form a diverse body of information on such issues as war debts, currency stabilization, tariff matters, naval parity, neutrality legislation, diplomatic recognition of Russia, the rise to power of Hitler and Mussolini, the St. Lawrence Waterway Treaty, the Italian–Ethiopian War, the Spanish Civil War, and the “good neighbor” policy. Foreign affairs has been defined in broad terms by the editor of these volumes, and materials selected relate not only to the President’s handling of foreign relations, but also to the domestic background, particularly Roosevelt’s efforts to gain support for his policies. Included are press conference transcripts, messages to Congress, speeches, press releases, memoranda to and from executive officers, and correspondence with legislators, ambassadors, heads of state, organizations, and individual citizens. Of the 1,400 documents selected from the papers in the Roosevelt Library at Hyde Park, all but a few are published here for the first time.
