Idealism Without Illusions/U.S. Foreign Policy in the 1990s

Publication date: January 1, 1994

Publisher: Isi Books

From the publisher:

“[This] book presents a vision of American foreign policy for the 1990s which would reconcile the imperatives of Realpolitik with the moral fervor of the American culture. Distinguishing between the American purpose and its national security interest, Weigel contends […] that while the quest for instant utopia is a recipe for tragedy, American foreign policy can and should seek steady progress toward a world that is increasingly characterized by the rule of law rather than the rule of brute force” –Eugene V. Rostow
