Summary
"A Republic, Not an Empire is presidential candidate Pat Buchanan's plea for a new American foreign policy. To avoid a future of endless war, he offers a new policy rooted in America's greatest traditions. Surveying the sweep of our nation's history, Buchanan demonstrates how America's liberty is best protected when the United States pursues its own vital interests, and how our liberty is most endangered when we embark on international crusades that are divorced from those interests."--Book jacket
