Synopses & Reviews

Rosenberg shows how U.S. foreign relations evolved from a largely private system to an increasingly public one and how, soon, the American dream became global.
"This stimulating essay combines intellectual, economic, and diplomatic history [and] provides fresh insights into the way governmental power was used to shape the American domestic marketplace, and how that visible hand was again used overseas."--Walter LaFeber, Cornell University
