Ideologies of US Foreign Policy : From Pearl Harbour to the Present Paperback
Part of the Routledge Studies in US Foreign Policy series
The current Bush administration has frequently been labelled one of the most ideologically driven administrations in recent American history, its Iraq policy often said to represent the triumph of ideology over sensible policy advice.
The name almost always given to the ideology that has supposedly captured the foreign policy of the Bush administration is neoconservatism.
Such claims treat both ideology and neoconservatism as highly pejorative terms, robbing this discourse of much of its analytical purchase.
In this book we show that the ideological dimension of US foreign policy is an important and ever-present variable, adopting a modified version of Michael Freeden's morphological approach to the study of ideologies.
