Overview

This book's central claim is that Niebuhr and Morgenthau may be read as heirs to a particularly Americanrepublicanism, whose ideal of patriotism as "embedded dissent" is a powerful and much-needed corrective to contemporary vocabularies of international justice, legitimacy, and restraint on both the left and the right.
