Phillip Dehne’s new book is After the Great War: Economic Warfare and the Promise of Peace in Paris 1919 (Bloomsbury, 2019). This describes the Paris Peace Conference by looking at Lord Robert Cecil, the onetime British Minister of Blockade. By examining the theme of international economic controls and describing the transformation of the Allied blockade, this book uncovers some of the conference’s surprising successes. Dehne is also the author of On the Far Western Front: Britain’s First World War in South America (Manchester University Press, 2009), along with various articles related to the economic conflict during the First World War. 

At St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn, Professor Dehne is the Associate Chair of the History Department and coordinator of the SJC 100 Freshman Seminar program. He teaches a variety of courses on British, European, and Global History.
