This chapter discusses the Paris Peace Conference, which resolved the diplomatic, territorial, and economic issues that provoked war. It defines the term “Old World” and notes that the Conference was mostly about fixing the map of territorial possession among the nation-states. It looks at the Intelligence Section, which included Bowman, and the factual and cartographic materials it provided for the American commissioners. The territorial settlements and fixing of the borders of Poland and the Fiume/Rijeka Crisis are discussed, along with the House Affairs. The chapter ends with a discussion of the result of the conference, Bowman's dissatisfaction with President Wilson, and the cartography of ethnicity.

Keywords:   Paris Peace Conference, Old World, territorial possession, Intelligence Section, territorial settlements, Fiume/Rijeka Crisis, cartography of ethnicity
