The main issues of this work are the construction of US identity, as seen particularly in its foreign policy, and structural issues of identity. Specifically, by taking foreign policy to be an important (though not predominant) practice of security, and by taking United States foreign policy to be an important, though not overriding, practice in international politics, this book examines the way in which the identity of the United States of America has been written and rewritten through foreign policies operating in its name. A number of changes have been made for this revised edition, most notable of which is the addition of an epilogue dealing with the increasing attention paid to identity politics and the politics of identity in international relations.
