Summary
"In this reconceptualization of the history of U.S. foreign policy, Walter L. Hixson contends that a mythical national identity, which includes the notion of American moral superiority and the duty to protect all of humanity, has had remarkable continuity through the centuries, repeatedly propelling America into war against an endless series of external enemies. As this myth has supported violence, violence in turn has supported the myth." "The Myth of American Diplomacy shows the deep connections between American foreign policy and the domestic culture from which it springs. Hixson examines the discourses within America that have continuously inspired what he calls our "pathologically violent foreign policy," and he suggests some ways to redirect foreign policy toward a more just and peaceful world."--Jacket
