Imperien sind ein zentrales Thema der Geschichts- und Politikwissenschaften. Mit den USA und dem Imperium Romanum analysiert Ulrich Leitner die zwei prominentesten »Imperien« der modernen politologischen und althistorischen Debatte. Dabei verbindet er erstmals beide Sichtweisen und entwickelt ein idealtypisches Modell des Imperiums, das in beiden Disziplinen angewendet werden kann.

»Are we Rome?« Die Identifizierung mit Rom und dessen Legitimationsformeln politischer Herrschaft, aber auch das Menetekel vom Untergang der Römischen Republik zählen seit dem 18. Jahrhundert zu den Narrativen US-amerikanischer Selbstverständigung. Neu ist jedoch die Vielfalt, mit der zuletzt in den USA die einst antiimperialistische Projektion auf das republikanische Rom durch Aufwertungen des früher verhassten Imperium Romanum relativiert wurde, um daraus – so kann es diese Studie zeigen – zustimmungsfähige Imperiumsvisionen zu schöpfen. Ausgezeichnet mit dem Dissertationspreis 2014 der Bayerischen Amerika-Akademie.

Demokratische Imperien stehen vor einem besonderen Stabilitätsproblem: Sie müssen den imperialen Herrschaftsraum sichern, ohne dadurch die eigenen demokratischen Institutionen zu gefährden. Das antike Römische Reich ist an dieser Aufgabe spektakulär gescheitert, und in den USA befürchten derzeit viele, dasselbe Schicksal zu erleiden. Diese Sorge ist nicht unbegründet, denn heute wie damals droht die innere Machtbalance durch imperiale Akteure aus dem Gleichgewicht zu geraten. Gerne wird in solchen Situationen die einigende Wirkung eines äußeren Feindes beschworen. Ob jedoch der Zusammenhalt tatsächlich gestärkt wird oder vielmehr das Gegenteil eintritt, hängt von spezifischen benennbaren Umständen ab.

This book brings together international relations scholars, political theorists, and historians to reflect on the intellectual history of American foreign policy since the late nineteenth century. It offers a nuanced and multifaceted collection of essays covering a wide range of concerns, concepts, presidential doctrines, and rationalities of government thought to have marked America's engagement with the world during this period: nation-building, exceptionalism, isolationism, modernisation, race, utopia, technology, war, values, the 'clash of civilisations' and many more. The collection is organised chronologically and looks at the work of intellectuals who have written both in support and critically about US foreign policy in various geographical and historical contexts. It considers Andrew Carnegie, Carl Schmitt, Hans Morgenthau, George Kennan, Samuel Huntington, Paul Wolfowitz and many other thinkers and practitioners who have contributed in shaping the ways in which we have come to think of US foreign policy over the years. Contributors to this volume have been selected not simply for their prestige in the field, but also because they come from North America as well as the UK, reflecting distinct academic traditions, political perspectives, and expressive styles. Recent events in America and Europe have highlighted the need for pluralist consideration of the intellectual sources of and influences on US foreign policy, both as it is made from within and understood from without.

Across the course of American history, imperialism and anti-imperialism have been awkwardly paired as influences on the politics, culture, and diplomacy of the United States. The Declaration of Independence, after all, is an anti-imperial document, cataloguing the sins of the metropolitan government against the colonies. With the Revolution, and again in 1812, the nation stood against the most powerful empire in the world and declared itself independent. As noted by Ian Tyrrell and Jay Sexton, however, American "anti-imperialism was clearly selective, geographically, racially, and constitutionally." Empire's Twin broadens our conception of anti-imperialist actors, ideas, and actions; it charts this story across the range of American history, from the Revolution to our own era; and it opens up the transnational and global dimensions of American anti-imperialism. By tracking the diverse manifestations of American anti-imperialism, this book highlights the different ways in which historians can approach it in their research and teaching. The contributors cover a wide range of subjects, including the discourse of anti-imperialism in the Early Republic and Civil War, anti-imperialist actions in the U.S. during the Mexican Revolution, the anti-imperial dimensions of early U.S. encounters in the Middle East, and the transnational nature of anti-imperialist public sentiment during the Cold War and beyond.

In the early decades of the American Republic, American soldiers demonstrated and defined their beliefs about the nature of American republicanism and how they, as citizens and soldiers, were participants in the republican experiment through their service. In For Liberty and the Republic, Ricardo A. Herrera examines the relationship between soldier and citizen from the War of Independence through the first year of the Civil War. The work analyzes an idealized republican ideology as a component of soldiering in both peace and war. Herrera argues that American soldiers’ belief system—the military ethos of republicanism—drew from the larger body of American political thought. This ethos illustrated and informed soldiers’ faith in an inseparable connection between bearing arms on behalf of the republic, and earning and holding citizenship in it. Despite the undeniable existence of customs, organizations, and behaviors that were uniquely military, the officers and enlisted men of the regular army, states’ militias, and wartime volunteers were the products of their society, and they imparted what they understood as important elements of American thought into their service. Drawing from military and personal correspondence, journals, orderly books, militia constitutions, and other documents in over forty archives in twenty-three states, Herrera maps five broad, interrelated, and mutually reinforcing threads of thought constituting soldiers’ beliefs: Virtue; Legitimacy; Self-governance; Glory, Honor, and Fame; and the National Mission. Spanning periods of war and peace, these five themes constituted a coherent and long-lived body of ideas that informed American soldiers’ sense of identity for generations.
