Summary: This is a wide-ranging discussion of American efforts to recast the international order in its own political image. The contributions given by a distinguished group of analysts are as diverse as they are challenging to traditional ways of thinking about US democracy promotion. As we enter into the 21st century with American hegemony intact, it is vital to understand what drives the world's last remaining superpower, and this original study helps us do precisely that
by exploring in detail and depth one of the more contentious and least understood aspects of American foreign policy.

"This is a probing and fascinating examination of the role of democracy-promotion in the past history and current practice of United States foreign policy. For anyone interested in this subject, this book is indispensable."
--Melvyn Leffley, University of Virginia
"This superb collection of essays tackles the swirl of debates and questions surrounding the post-Cold War American promotion of democracy...hugely impressive...It represents the most important published attempt to come to grips with an issue which lies at the heart of contemporary international politics."
--The World Today
"Exceptionally valuable and thoughtful book...since the end of the Cold War, US rhetoric about the promotion of democracy has assumed new force and some new funding. Fifteen scholars here investigate the current state of play."
