Realists, Nationalists, and Globalists and the Nature of Contemporary Rising Powers

(p.210) 7 Conclusion
Worldviews of Aspiring Powers

This chapter analyzes the key cross-national trends in domestic foreign policy debates in rising and aspiring powers in Asia and Eurasia. It explores the likely implications of those trends for international relations in the region and for United States foreign policy. It shows three key patterns: the cross-national similarity of the spectrum of relevant foreign policy schools; the tendency of the center of gravity within that spectrum to be located on its Realist and/or Nationalist side; and the cross-national trend away from Idealism toward Realism and/or Nationalism in general and, in some cases, toward their relatively pragmatic variants in particular. The chapter describes the key arguments of each school of thought; addresses the nature of their influence and how they relate to one another; and identifies, based on the country chapters in this volume, their key proponents in the countries studied.

Keywords:   domestic foreign policy, rising powers, Asia, Eurasia, international relations, United States
