Summary
"Theoretical Roots of US Foreign Policy" explores the reasons why American leaders from the 1700s onwards frequently adopt policies of unilateralism. Thomas M. Kane presents fresh explanations for America's invasion of Iraq and defiance of international agreements, which go much deeper than conventional critiques of particular presidents to examine the real significance of the September 11 attacks. As the only and unprecedented sole superpower, the US faces a range of new and complex problems. Kane draws on the thinking of Machiavelli to illuminate and assess the key challenges for both the US and the global community. This unique book: connects contemporary US policy to patterns that reach back to the America's founding; explores political dynamics affecting all republics; contributes to theoretical debates about the benevolence, or otherwise, of American democracy; and highlights the key issues that Americans and non-Americans alike must address now and in the future. This book will be of great interest to all students of US foreign policy, strategy and history and of international relations, politics and strategic studies in general
