This chapter looks at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the creation of liberal foreign policy. The Council was established directly out of the deliberations in Paris, and reveals that Bowman was one of its founding directors. The discussion begins by studying how World War I transformed U.S. geographical research, and then traces the origins of the CFR. Bowman's foreign policy liberalism and the concept of gradual revolutionism are studied in the last section of the chapter.
