Welcome to Jaron Sandy's homepage


Lloyd George of Britain, Orlando of Italy,
Clemenceau of France and Wilson of the U.S. in Paris

    This is my website for my final project for Professor Setear's "How We Get Into Wars" class (Fall 1999) at the University of Virginia School of Law.  My project is primarily a comparison between Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points speech from January 8, 1918 and the Treaty of Versailles signed on June 28, 1919.  My goal is to explore whether and to what extent the Treaty ending the "Great War" was consistent with the internationalist principles Wilson had strongly advocated before the end of the fighting.

    This site is composed of three main parts:

    A) the text of my paper

    B) two brief side-note pages, one on the personalities of the main negotiators and the other on my personal conclusions, and

    C) annotated links to other related topics for further information and depth.

    I hope this will be a useful tool to future students and others researching topics about the Fourteen Points and the Treaty of Versailles.  Though citing to a third-year law student as an authoritative source is probably not a wise idea, at least the annotated web bibliography from the links page should point you in the right direction on how to find reliable information, and ideally, it will save you some time as you focus your search.
