Founded in 1899 to oppose U.S. annexation of the Philippines following the Spanish-American War , the Anti-imperialist League was the largest lobbying organization on a U.S. foreign-policy issue through the end of the nineteenth century. The league, strongest in the Northeast, was an ideological heir of both the antebellum abolitionist movement and Mugwump critics of Gilded Age political corruption.

...prominently again in critiques of U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. Those who have advanced anti-imperialist criticism and endorsed a more circumspect or “traditionalist” role for the United States in the world are too numerous to list and have ranged across the political spectrum. Notable examples include major figures from the founding era, such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison ; the diverse membership of the Anti-imperialist League; the so-called irreconcilable isolationist senator William E.

The UN Trusteeship Council, under the authority of the General Assembly, had the power to issue questionnaires and demand reports from states...

...Points ( 1918 ). President Woodrow Wilson 's statement of January 1918 was the most important on war aims advanced during World War I. Based on his antiimperialist “Peace without Victory” formula of the previous year, Wilson made his address owing primarily to the revolutionary upheaval that had seized Russia. By the end of 1917 , Lenin and Trotsky had pulled their ravaged homeland out of the war, thus permitting Germany to transfer huge numbers of troops to the western front. They also published the Allies' secret treaties (signed by the...

But, though external interference ( Epaminondas , Mausolus ) and Chares' malefactions certainly fuelled disaffection and anti-imperialist rhetoric, manifesto principles did not apply strictly or constrain Athens' general foreign policy. Tribute remained—annually assessed syntaxis (invented by Callistratus (2) )—and governors, garrisons, and political/judicial interference appear in confederate states:...

...by disagreements over expansion, intervention, political self-determination, and free trade, the peace movement instead birthed a diverse mass movement of anti-imperialists.

...a new and better world. Drawing upon his anti-imperialist “Peace without Victory” formula of 1917 , he then outlined the American peace program. Seven of the points dealt with territorial readjustments, including the “unembarrassed opportunity” for Russia to shape her own destiny. The others were characteristically Wilsonian—open covenants openly arrived at free trade; national self-determination, reductions in armaments; impartial adjustment of colonial claims; freedom of the seas; and, the capstone, a League of Nations .
