About this Item

272 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS. The Anglosphere refers to a community of English-speaking states, nations, and societies centered on Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, which has profoundly influenced the direction of world history and fascinated countless observers. This book argues that the origins of the Anglosphere are racial. Drawing on theories of collective identity-formation and framing, the book develops a new framework for analyzing foreign policy, which it then evaluates in case studies related to fin-de-si¸cle imperialism (1894-1903), the ill-fated Pacific Pact (1950-1), the Suez crisis (1956), the Vietnam escalation (1964-5), and the run-up to the Iraq war (2002-3). Each case study highlights the contestations over state and empire, race and nation, and liberal internationalism and anti-Americanism, taking into consideration how they shaped international conflict and cooperation. In reconstructing the history of the Anglosphere, the book engages directly with the most recent debates in international relations scholarship and American foreign policy. Srdjan Vucetic is Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa. He teaches international relations theory and American foreign policy. "The Anglosphere brings the study of international relations into the twenty-first century, paradoxically, by returning to the past. Vucetic analyzes the now officially forgotten racial-in-origin identification of Anglo-Saxon peoples and shows how it still matters in the close alignment of policies among the US, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. He wants us all to think harder about racialization as a force in world politics."ÑRobert Vitalis, University of Pennsylvania "Relying on the toolkit of social science and informed by a sure grasp of international relations theory, this audaciously brilliant book inquires into the racial and post-racial foundations of the liberal core of the international system. My recommendation is simple. Read it, admire it, and learn from it."ÑPeter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter Professor, Jr. of International Studies, Cornell University "International relations theory remains remarkably resilient in its refusal to accord race a fundamental place in its vocabulary or explanations. By concentrating on the 'Anglosphere' core, Vucetic's engaging analysis of the evolving special relationship between the United States and the British Empire promises to destabilize such complacency by demonstrating ways in which their foreign policies are premised on a sharedÑoften explicitÑwhite identity. Realists and liberals should take note, but so too should any constructivists who have dismissed critical variants of post-positivism."ÑAudie Klotz, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University "Judiciously balancing theory and history, Srdjan Vucetic shows what difference the 'Anglosphere'Ñthat unique identity that binds the English-speaking worldÑmade to how its members pursued their interests abroad. From its racialized Anglo-Saxon origins to its contemporary intertwining with liberal internationalism and human rights, the Anglosphere has proven resilient in global politics, and Vucetic demonstrates how this changing discourse has shaped these nations' debates over foreign affairs. Building on previous work on language and international relations, Vucetic's story is rich yet readable, his method rigorous, his style engaging. A real contribution to our understanding both of how language shapes global politics and of how the Anglo-American world came to be."ÑRonald R. Krebs, University of Minnesota "Srdjan Vucetic has crafted an outstanding analysis of the role of racial factorsÑin this case Anglo-SaxonismÑin international politics. The study is genuinely ground-breaking in this regard. It is also theoretically, methodologically and. Bookseller Inventory # 73068X1
