"For the fourth time in a century, America after the Cold War finds herself the most powerful and influential nation on earth. The distinguished diplomat and scholar, Robert Strausz-Hup, who played so important a part in determining that outcome, has traced the sources of American influence first identified by de Tocqueville to the appropriate foreign policy for the post-Cold War United States. After diplomatic assignments as diverse as Ambassador to NATO, Sri Lanka, and three countries in between, his practitioner's insight informs this volume which joins his others as a standard reference for students of American foreign policy."
—Edwin J. Feulner, The Heritage Foundation
"Alexis de Tocqueville was one of the shrewdest observers of American democracy and Robert Strausz-Hupe is one of the shrewdest observers of American foreign policy. Together they are a terrific combination. Anyone who wants to think deeply about our country's future will find this a must read."
—Sherwood D. Goldberg, Managing Director, Worldwide Associates, Inc.
"Democracy and American Foreign Policy is the wisest insight yet written on American policy-making in the post-Cold War era."
