This book examines major foreign conflicts from the Spanish-American War through Vietnam, arguing that international conflicts have strong effects on American political parties, elections, state development, and policymaking. First, major wars expose and highlight problems requiring governmental solutions or necessitating emergency action. Second, despite well-known curtailments of civil liberties, wars often enhance democracy by drawing attention to the contributions of previously marginalized groups and facilitating the extension of fuller citizenship rights to them. Finally, wars affect the party system. Foreign conflicts create crises - many of which are unanticipated - that require immediate attention, supplant prior issues on the policy agenda, and engender shifts in party ideology. These new issues and redefinitions of party ideology frequently influence elections by shaping both elite and mass behavior.

Book Description:

This book is the first of its kind to link international conflicts with domestic politics. From the Spanish-American War to Vietnam, this book examines how international wars have affected domestic politics and policymaking in the United States. Foreign wars have long-lasting effects that shape elections, political party ideology, the federal government's role in society, and expansions of democratic rights that have benefited women, African Americans, and other groups that have substantially contributed to a war effort.
