(p.89) Four Corporatism
Cold War US Foreign Policy

Steven Hurst

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the corporatist interpretation of US Cold War foreign policy. It explains the concept of corporatism and contends that as a perspective in diplomatic history it shares with revisionism a focus on the domestic economic sources of foreign policy. It analyses the works of Michael J. Hogan and Thomas J. McCormick and argues that corporatism as a perspective remains underdeveloped and underutilised, at least in part because those who advocated it failed to explore its full potential.

Keywords:   corporatism, foreign policy, Cold War, United States, diplomatic history, domestic economic resources, Michael J. Hogan, Thomas J. McCormick
