Overview

Realist Strategies of Republican Peace: Niebuhr, Morgenthau, and the Politics of Patriotic Dissent by V. Tjalve

This book's central claim is that Niebuhr and Morgenthau may be read as heirs to a particularly American republicanism, whose ideal of patriotism as "embedded dissent" is a powerful and much-needed corrective to contemporary vocabularies of international justice, legitimacy, and restraint on both the left and the right.
