Summary "This book examines a critical period in recent world history (the end of the Cold War) and provides the first in-depth and systematic examination of the strategies and values employed in the public diplomacy of the Bush and Clinton Administrations to build domestic and international consensus. It provides insight into the uses of presidential power and the relationships between national myths, elite perceptions of the strategic environment, and foreign policy stances. It provides an illustration of how the role and content of rhetoric may be studied to illuminate the sources and tensions of the foreign policy of the United States."--BOOK JACKET
