(p.165) Conclusions
Cold War US Foreign Policy

Steven Hurst

Edinburgh University Press

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on various interpretation of US foreign policy during the Cold War, which include traditionalism, revisionism, post-revisionism, corporatism, world-systems theory, post-structuralism, culturalism. They all provide valuable insights into US foreign policy but they are all inadequate as complete explanations of that policy. These various perspectives show that American foreign policy during this period had geopolitical, social, cultural, linguistic, and ideological dimensions.

Keywords:   foreign policy, traditionalism, revisionism, post-revisionism, corporatism, world-systems theory, post-structuralism, culturalism
