American Foreign Policy: Studies in Intellectual History

Jean-Francois Drolet and James Dunkerley


This book brings together international relations scholars, political theorists, and historians to reflect on the intellectual history of American foreign policy since the late nineteenth century. It offers a nuanced and multifaceted collection of essays covering a wide range of concerns, concepts, presidential doctrines, and rationalities of government thought to have marked America’s engagement with the world during this period: nation-building, exceptionalism, isolationism, modernisation, race, utopia, technology, war, values, the ‘clash of civilisations’ and many more.

Keywords: US Foreign Policy, Intellectual History, International Relations, Carl Schmitt, Andre Carnegie, Clash of Civilisations, Paul Wolfowitz, Samuel Huntington, Nation Building, Cold War
