American Grand Strategy under Obama

Competing Discourses

First Edition

Georg Löfflmann

Published by Edinburgh University Press

This book explores how rivalling discourses of American grand strategy reveal a fractured consensus of geopolitical identity and national security under President Obama. This conflict manifested in divergent elite visions of liberal hegemony, cooperative engagement and unilateral restraint.
