Abstract
The period from 1931 to 1937 in the U.S. foreign policy is determined by unsuccessful attempts of Washington to prevent the collapse of U.S. - Japanese relations system developed in the 1920s. The crisis in relations between the two countries grew in the context of Japanese aggression against Manchuria, militarization of Japan and its withdrawal from the League of Nations and several important international agreements. This period ended in July 1937 when the so-called "incident at the Marco Polo Bridge" had escalated to the full-scaled war with China and then into Pacific war.
