Description: The United States of America by any standard has had the most successful foreign policy in the history of the world. Beginning as an isolated string of settlements at the edge of the known world, in two centuries the United States threw the French and the Spanish out of the New World, fought off German, Japanese and Soviet attempts to build totalitarian hegemonies, and peacefully dismantled the British Empire, once the mightiest force that the world had ever seen. With the triumphant end of the Cold War, American power soared to new heights, as its language, culture, currency and political values emerged as the basic elements in a global order.

Yet despite this success, both foreigners and Americans have routinely considered American foreign policy to be a political backwater and an intellectual wasteland. Americans have forgotten their own foreign policy traditions, and foreigners routinely sneer at what they consider the unsophisticated and amateurish foreign policy blunders of American governments.

Special Providence celebrates two centuries of American success in the world, reveals the forgotten intellectual and political bases of American strength, and explains the enduring national interests and values which continue to guide the development of American grand strategy in a post-Cold War world. Special Providence, a full-scale revision and re-interpretation of American history, will change the way Americans think about our past, our future, and the rest of the world.
