    Tony Smith does the difficult job of rationalizing conflicting facts. He argues, unpersuasively, in this book that democracy promotion has been the primary motive for U.S. foreign policy in the 20th century, using multiple cases as empirical guide: 1. The Philippines 2. The Wilson “Revolution” 3. World War II and the Democratizations of Japan and Germany 4. The Cold War 5. The Carter Years 6. The Reagan Doctrine 7. After the Cold War 8. The EU as an Agent of Democracy

    Very thorough look at American foreign policy, the motivations behind it, and the causes of its successes and failures. The use of Japan and Germany as successes of containment was a bit surprising to me at first, but actually fit quite well in the long-term view of the trend of American containment

    Paul D. Miller

    A good historical overview of American efforts to promote democracy abroad; some flawed assumptions about how democracy grows undergirds much of the analysis; and the concluding chapters on the Bush and Obama administrations can be pretty much ignored.

    Very informational on the us spread of democracy abroad for the past century and how the strategy in spreading democracy has varied.
