This chapter focuses on William Dodd's return to the United States on January 6, 1938 after spending the previous four years as U.S. ambassador to Germany. It considers Dodd's dilemma at the time: whether he should retire and focus on writing a history of the Old South, or whether he should spend his time lecturing and writing about the threat of fascism. It cites the completion of the first volume of Dodd's book, Struggles for Democracy, as well as his belief that he was having little impact on the course of American foreign policy.

Keywords:   ambassador, William Dodd, United States, Germany, history, Old South, fascism, Struggles for Democracy, foreign policy
