Woodrow Wilson's War
February 22, 2009
Neo-conservatives and neo-liberals share far more in common than their adherents are usually willing to admit, as Michael Desch reveals in this review essay in The National Interest.
Desch's review of The Crisis of American Foreign Policy: Wilsonianism in the Twenty-first Century, by G. John Ikenberry, Thomas J. Knock, Anne-Marie Slaughter and Tony Smith, and of George C. Herring's From Colony to Superpower: U.S. Foreign Relations Since 1776 appears in the January/February 2009 issue of The National Interest.
Michael C. Desch is a professor of political science and fellow of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of Power and Military Effectiveness: The Fallacy of Democratic Triumphalism (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2008).
