(p.140) Six Post-structuralism and Culture
Cold War US Foreign Policy

Steven Hurst

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the post-structuralist and culturalist interpretation of US Cold War foreign policy. It explains that post-structuralism and culturalism failed to reject the poker strategies proposed by other perspectives and they also rejected the accepted view of the objective of the game and its rules. It analyses David Campbell's Writing Security and looks at diplomatic historians who describe themselves as concerned with culture but who are also influenced by post-structuralist ideas.

Keywords:   post-structuralism, culturalism, foreign policy, David Campbell, Writing Security, diplomatic historians, post-structuralist ideas
