The chapters examines the struggles that Bowman faced as a Wilsonian diplomat, the president of the IGU, and later the President of Johns Hopkins University as he argued for friendship and the moral vindication of education as the US adopted the new deal and relations with Eastern European friends became shaky. It situates Penck, through the legacy of his final pupils, as an enabler of German fascism through geographic study. It shares that Rudnyts’kyi faced arrest by Stalinist forces in Kharkov for a life dedicated to assembling a Ukrainian geography and that Teleki and Romer continued to work on their geographies for both their own nations and the transnational communities (Romer helped Bowman to assemble the IGC in 1934). As continuing turmoil in international relations shook Europe in the 1930s, Bowman grew apart from his European intimates and fought to instil a distinctly white-supremist attitude that married education and American conception of empire and civility in his sons.
