TitleAmerican foreign policy and its thinkers
Author Perry Anderson
ImprintBrooklyn, NY : Verso, 2015
Edition First edition
Descript ix, 272 pages ; 22 cm


"Since the birth of the nation, the idea of empire has been at the heart of the United States' image of itself. Through a close reading of both the acknowledged grand strategists as well as the more non-conformist foreign policy analysts, Anderson charts the entwined historical development of America's imperial reach and its role as the general guarantor of capital. The tensions between these are traced from the closing stages of the Second World War through the Cold War to the War on Terror. Despite the defeat of the USSR, Anderson shows that the planetary structures for warfare and surveillance have not been retracted but extended. The future of the Empire remains to be settled"-- Provided by publisher
