How isolationist was American foreign policy in the period of 1920-41?

I have to write an essay on this for my course work. Please can I have some guidance or any primary and secondary sources?

Well, don't know if this will help much. But in 1920 Harding called for a return to 'normalcy', so isolationism. So in general, America strived to maintain this stance and avoid international interference. And to evidence the isolationist view you can use the rejection of the League of Nations by America in 1920.

But you need to take into account America's 'open door' policy with China and the rise of Japanese militarism, America did get involved in regards to this, so this is a counter argument.

My main tip is to just read around this area first, before you jump in. It's typical of America to say one thing and to do another, and that time period depicts just that.

Remember to show both sides of the argument, and evidence any points you make with key dates and events. But also, in your intro state your view (if they were isolationist/or not) and then follow that through to your conclusion. Meaning, always support your argument a little more, to show u have made a strong case

Hope this helps
