American Democracy Promotion

Ole R. Holsti

Oxford University Press

Discusses the impact of public opinion upon American democracy promotion after the Cold War. It seeks to answer the following questions: How strong is public support for promoting democracy abroad? To what extent do the views of the general public diverge from those of opinion leaders? How has the end of the Cold War affected support for democracy promotion? Has this goal served to bridge the partisan and ideological gap over foreign policy issues within the US political class?

Keywords:   Cold War, democracy promotion, foreign policy, opinion leaders, political class, public opinion, public support, USA
