The evolving role of nation-building in US foreign policy

Explores the political culture argument and illustrates it through a description of how political culture shaped threat perceptions and such national security analyses and statements as the Project Solarium position papers NSC-68 in the formative years of the Cold War. The chapter also explores the process by which the US came to view the entire world as its ‘national security zone’, in which virtually every event was of importance to US national security.

Keywords:   American political culture, Cold War, Project Solarium, NSC-68, national security zone
