  • Should America try to bring democracy to countries that are young or poor or that have cultures very different from our own This book shows why the sophisticates have been wrong, why idealism offers the most sound basis for US policy Since its small beginnings in 1776, America has served as the world s great engine of democracy Our aid and trade, our overseas broadcastsShould America try to bring democracy to countries that are young or poor or that have cultures very different from our own This book shows why the sophisticates have been wrong, why idealism offers the most sound basis for US policy Since its small beginnings in 1776, America has served as the world s great engine of democracy Our aid and trade, our overseas broadcasts and libraries, our cloak and dagger exploits, but above all else, the power of our example have been forces of moral good throughout the world Foreseeing a Pax Americana in the next century resulting not from war or diplomacy but from the triumph of democratic ideals, the author argues that the effort to spread democracy further should form the core of US foreign policy.
