Democracy and Foreign Policy

Democracy and Foreign Policy

(p.205) 10 Democracy and Foreign Policy
Democratic Vistas

John Lewis Gaddis

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses democracy and American foreign policy. It argues that, although American-style democracy and markets are triumphant in much of the world, we should not take false reassurance from this fact. The history of the past century might have gone very differently, and that it went our way is not a reason for confidence that the next century will do the same. Human affairs are full of contingency, happenstance, and small incidents with huge consequences.

Keywords:   United States, foreign policy, democracy
