This chapter discusses the postwar territorial arrangements of the United States, especially those with Germany. The concepts of The New World and the “new world order” are studied briefly, before the discussion turns to the new economic geography that was established through intense political struggles. The discussion looks at the idea of a “Pax Americana.” This is followed by a section on defining the Western Hemisphere. The chapter also looks at the efforts of the Council of Foreign Affairs (CFA) to help protect the interests of the Americans. The proceedings of the meeting with Germany—including the disposition of Germany and the de facto decisions—are included.

Keywords:   territorial arrangements, New World, economic geography, political struggles, Pax Americana, de facto decisions
