American realism versus American imperialism

By Campbell Craig

Abstract

This article reviews three recent books critical of America's new "imperial" foreign policy, examines whether the United States can properly be compared to empires of the past, and identifies three aspects of contemporary American policy that may well be called imperialist.It also addresses some of the main objections to recent U.S. foreign policy made by American realist scholars and argues that traditional interstate realism can no longer readily apply to the problem of American unipolar preponderance over an anarchical, nuclear-armed world
