Publisher's Summary

Has the United States been a force for liberty around the world? Should it be? And if so, how? To answer these questions, Christopher A. Preble traces the history of US foreign policy from the American founding to the present, examining the ideas that have animated it, asking whether America's policy choices have made the world safer and freer, and considering the impact of those choices on freedom at home.

Preble explains the need to question the assumptions that drive American foreign policy in the modern era?especially the assumption that American politicians can and should forcibly remake the international order to suit their desires. He asks readers to consider whether America and the world would be safer and freer if US foreign policy incorporated libertarian insights about the limitations of government power.

At once evenhanded and uncompromising, Peace, War, and Liberty is a comprehensive challenge to the interventionist ideology of America's foreign policy establishment.

Great 'big picture' view to check ourselves.

A great summary of our actions and solutions to problems. Ignore this essay and you'll no longer be in sync with America's true purpose!
