American Foreign Policy and Its Thinkers
By: Perry Anderson (author)Hardback
Since the birth of the nation, the idea of empire has been at the heart of United States's 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 with 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 Despite the defeat of the USSR, Anderson shows that the planetary structures for warfare and surveillance have not been retracted but extended.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.
Perry Anderson is the author of, among other books, Spectrum, Lineages of the Absolutist State, Passages from Antiquity to Feudalism, Considerations on Western Marxism, English Questions, The Origins of Postmodernity, The New Old World and The Indian Ideology. He teaches history at UCLA and is on the editorial board of New Left Review.
