America's Mission:
The United States and the Worldwide Struggle for Democracy (Expanded Edition)
Tony Smith
A Century Foundation Book

Book Description
Chapter 1 [in PDF format] | Table of Contents [PDF only]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"A historically sweeping, theoretically ambitious study of American attempts at promoting liberal democracy abroad, this is the most subtle and thorough examination of a "mission" that has had more than its share of successes, halts, detours, and deviations. No student of America in this world will be able to ignore it: there is simply no comparable volume."--Stanley Hoffmann, Chairman, Center for European Studies, Dillon Professor of the Civilization of France

"No one concerned with America's role in the world can afford to ignore the powerful argument and impressive scholarship of this landmark study."--Ronald Steel, University of Southern California, School of International Relations

"Breathtaking in its coverage. . . . The author combines historical narrative with political analysis in dazzling fashion, particularly on Woodrow Wilson, whose pragmatic idealism is the leitmotif of this book."--Arthur S. Link, Princeton University
