Hardcover. Some categorisations of US power have long governed analyses of American foreign policy - concepts such as 'empire', 'decline', 'superpower', 'the Cold War' and 'the War on Terror' - and have led to a distortion that sees US policy measured by broad labels, rather than on its own terms. This fresh new approach seeks to challenge these terms. Editor(s): Sewell, Bevan; Lucas, Scott. Num Pages: 314 pages, biography. BIC Classification: 1KBB; 3JJ; HBJK; HBLW; JPS.
