Abstract

The history of the peace process that ended the First World War has become one of the great political stories of our time. Historians have attributed to this illustrious gathering in the war-weary Paris of 1919 the beginnings of modern international relations, the dawn of a more democratic age grounded in the principle of nationality, and, rather more notoriously, the causes of the Second World War. Few contemporaries, however, celebrated the achievements of peacemaking without registering some doubts not only about the allegedly unfair treatment of Germany, but also the procedures, premises, and outcomes. This book pursues a new cultural and political story of the idea of the nation, and of international politics and peacemaking in the early twentieth century, which situates both in the context of the history of psychology. That new story begins with the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 and moves backwards in time to the history of the rise of scientific psychology since 1870.
