The Star-Spangled Mirror captures the dilemma of America's continuing reliance on an enduring fallacy of foreign policy-the assumption that other people ought to share our view of world order. Dr. Richard Kerry argues that from the time of Woodrow Wilson's aim to organize the world order in accordance with assumptions of democratic universalism, this vision of the world has remained central to U.S. foreign policy. The Star-Spangled Mirror will be considered an important addition to the history of American foreign policy and as required reading for current and future policy makers.

About the Author:

Richard Kerry's career in the State Department and Foreign Service included service as executive assistant to Senator Walter F. George, and special advisor to President Eisenhower on NATO and bipartisan foreign policy.

Review:

Richard Kerry shows not only great sensitivity to political issues, but also to the psychological factors that shape American thinking about foreign policy. (Jerome Bruner, New York University)

A subtle and perceptive essay that shows how American beliefs and political culture have shaped American foreign policy, often distorted our statemen's understanding of reality, and led to an exaggerated view of America's ability to transform the world. (Stanley Hoffmann, Harvard University)

This is a clear and well-written plea to America's leaders to abandon illusions of the past and define our national purpose in the world realistically. (George C. Lodge, Harvard Business School)

Raises fundamental questions about the liabilities of our national political culture for the practice of a reasonable long-term foreign policy. (David P. Calleo, Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University)

Although the book was written before the Cold War was clearly over, the nation's behavior in the Gulf War indicates that the message still has some validity. (Foreign Affairs)

So much of [Senator John Kerry’s] foreign policy worldview comes straight from Richard Kerry. (Douglas Brinkley, author of Tour of Duty: John Kerry and the Vietnam War)
