A Republic, not an Empire
A Republic, Not an Empire is Pat Buchanan’s erudite and eloquent plea for a new American foreign policy. To avoid a future of endless war, he offers a new policy rooted in America’s greatest traditions.
This is the story of how American statesmen, through vision and courage, quadrupled the size of our Republic in a single century to create the most remarkable nation the world had ever seen. This is also the story of how twentieth-century presidents abandoned George Washington’s “great rule” – to avoid permanent alliances and stay out of foreign wars – and led this country into global conflagrations that changed America and the world forever, and not always for the better.
