At home abroad : identity and power in American foreign policy by Henry R Nau( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States has never felt at home abroad. The reason for this unease, even after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, is not frequent threats to American security. It is America's identity. The United States, its citizens believe, is a different country, a New World of divided institutions and individualistic markets surviving in an Old World of nationalistic governments and statist economies. In this Old World, the United States finds no comfort and alternately tries to withdraw from it and reform it. America cycles between ambitious internationalist efforts to impose democracy and world order, and more nationalist appeals to trim multilateral commitments and demand that the European and Japanese allies do more. In At Home Abroad, Henry R. Nau explains that America is still unique but no longer so very different. All the industrial great powers in western Europe (and, arguably, also Japan) are now strong liberal democracies. A powerful and peaceful new world exists beyond America's borders and anchors America's identity, easing its discomfort and ending the cycle of withdrawal and reform. Nau draws on constructivist and realist perspectives to show how relative national identities interact with relative national power to define U.S. national interests. He provides fresh insights for U.S. grand strategy toward various countries. In Europe, the identity and power perspective advocates U.S. support for both NATO expansion to consolidate democratic identities in eastern Europe and concurrent, but separate, great-power cooperation with Russia in the United Nations. In Asia, this perspective recommends a shift of U.S. strategy from bilateralism to concentric multilateralism, starting with an emerging democratic security community among the United States, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, India, and Taiwan, and progressively widening this community to include reforming ASEAN states and, if it democratizes, China. In the developing world, Nau's approach calls for balancing U.S. moral (identity) and material (power) commitments, avoiding military intervention for purely moral reasons, as in Somalia, but undertaking such intervention when material threats are immediate, as in Afghanistan, or material and moral stakes coincide, as in Kosovo
Conservative internationalism : armed diplomacy under Jefferson, Polk, Truman, and Reagan by Henry R Nau( )

21 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Debates about U.S. foreign policy have revolved around three main traditions - liberal internationalism, realism and nationalism. In this book, distinguished political scientist Henry Nau delves deeply into a fourth, overlooked foreign policy tradition he calls "conservative internationalism." This approach spreads freedom, like liberal internationalism; arms diplomacy, like realism; and preserves national sovereignty, like nationalism. It targets a world of limited government or independent "sister republics," and not groups of great powers or centralized international institutions."--Back cover

77 editions published between 2006 and 2021 in English and Spanish and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text offers an accessible framework that enables students to recognize and evaluate the different perspectives through which we try to make sense of international politics.

Nau provides comprehensive coverage of security, economic, and global concerns, yet does so concisely and in an engrossing narrative style that both students and instructors will appreciate. The books analytical framework puts both explanatory perspectives and historical as well contemporary events at center stage. Theory and history are not divorced from the core of the book, orphaned in separate chapters, but rather illuminate controversies throughout the book, giving students important background and context for truly understanding todays globalized world. The books coverage of the world economy is especially thorough, combining discussions of the history and politics of globalization with an understanding of how the world economy actually works.

Organized to complement Perspectives on International Relations but flexible enough to use with any text or on its own, the collection covers a host of topics including terrorism, human security, development, civil society, global governance, political economy, and more.
