This new edition of Michael H. Hunt's classic reinterpretation of American diplomatic history includes a preface that reflects on the personal experience and intellectual agenda behind the writing of the book, surveys the broad impact of the book's argument, and addresses the challenges to the thesis since the book's original publication. In the wake of 9/11 this interpretation is more pertinent than ever.   Praise for the previous edition:   "Clearly written and historically sound. . . . A subtle critique and analysis."--Gaddis Smith, Foreign Affairs   "A lean, plain-spoken treatment of a grand subject. . . . A bold piece of criticism and advocacy. . . . The right focus of the argument may insure its survival as one of the basic postwar critiques of U.S. policy."--John W. Dower, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists   "A work of intellectual vigor and daring, impressive in its scholarship and imaginative in its use of material."--Ronald Steel, Reviews in American History   "A masterpiece of historical compression."--Wilson Quarterly   "A penetrating and provocative study. . . . A pleasure both to read and to contemplate."--John Martz, Journal of Politics… (mere)

Breakthrough book about how unstated assumptions of US culture affect US foreign policy, often in detrimental ways. The three bigs assumptions are 1) US greatness. 2) Fear of revolution 3) Racial hierarchy. US greatness is incontestable. Fear of revolution is more controversial, which Hunt demonstrates very strongly. The US doesn't start that way, but the French Revolution combined with the inherent belief in private property to make the US much more conservative. The issue of racism is murkier. Hunt has loads of political cartoons that illustrate US racial attitudes, but it is difficult to separate racism from the ideas of power/capability and the general practice of demonizing the enemy. Hunt makes a very convincing argument that cannot be dismissed, but could be more developed. ( )
