This introductory chapter argues that Woodrow Wilson's liberal internationalism was a product of his cultural context, a historical moment in which concerns about religion's influence on society permeated social, political, and legal activism. Throughout the twentieth century, representations of Wilson and “Wilsonian” internationalism continued to shape what it meant to be American and what resources would be marshaled for the production of American identity to audiences at home and abroad. The man and his mission became powerful symbols for defining and redefining the boundaries of nationalism for a new era in international relations. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
