Oxford Encyclopaedia of International Relations

I’m just in the process of completing my submission on “U.S. Foreign Policy” for the Oxford Encyclopaedia of International Relations.  Putting the history of US policy into 2500 words has really forced me to think about the longue durée of American policy, and focus down into what’s important.  Pulling out the big themes is a useful exercise: Isolationism vs Internationalism; Power vs Principle; Liberalism and Empire … I’m am slightly scared about how many binaries I seem to be using though … it makes me want to research/write that more historical book though, just so I can get stuck into the archives …
