Title Between virtue and power: the persistent moral dilemma of U.S. foreign policy
Author Kane, John
Year Published 2008
Place of publication New Haven, Conn
Publisher Yale University Press
Abstract In this survey of U.S. history, John Kane looks at the tensions between American virtue and power and how those tensions have influenced foreign policy. Americans have long been suspicious of power as a threat to individual liberty, Kane argues, and yet the growth of national power has been perceived as a natural byproduct of American virtue. This contradiction has posed a persistent crisis that has influenced the trajectory of American diplomacy and foreign relations for more than two hundred years.
