Buchanan is more in favour of the American efforts in Europe to keep it safe from communism. He is especially sympathetic towards president Reagan who brought the Soviet Union to its knees with little or no violence. Since then, both Bush sr. Although the book is dated , the author is already wary of neo-conservative politics. No hegemonist policy like Bush jr and no globalist policy like Obama, but Realpolitik like the 19nd century American politicians or their European peers Metternich, Bismarck, USA should only watch its own interest.
To end with a striking statement: US foreign policy should not be dovish or hawkish, but like an eagle, i. Dec 10, Spaniard rated it it was amazing Shelves: nationalism. If you want to understand what virtuous nationalism looks like and if you want to understand what moves populists, specifically the conservative kind, then Buchanan's book is a must read.
A Republic, Not an Empire: Reclaiming America's Destiny (Unabridged)
Buchanan makes history come alive and he has a nice understanding. This is well worth a read and don't be surprised if your mind is changed. Great book about the importance of borders and staying out of the entangling affairs of the European nations. George Washington warned of the problems getting involved with entangling alliances where a third party could force the United States to go to War because of a Treaty partner's dispute with another nation.

I don't think he is a crypto-Nazi. But reading his "let's not fight Hitler" part is very interesting. I gave portions of this to my AP class to read in class. Very good discussions. Jun 22, Rachel Woodward rated it it was amazing. Buchanan speaks with a tone of such common sense and realism, I really feel like I understand the world and America's position within it much better than I did. I love that he bases his arguments on history and the personality of nations' people rather than a one-size-fits-all conceptual theory.
He really starts from the facts and draws natural conclusions, rather than shaping the facts to his own ideas. This is a man who really knows his stuff. Definitely a worthwhile read! Mar 05, Eric Rouse rated it it was amazing. Although I am not an isolationist by any stretch of the imagination, I am alos not an expansionist.
Buchanan goes a long way to explaining why we should be returning to our roots as Americans first, and besides, he autographed my copy at Hampton Sydney College. Mar 22, Nathan Foy rated it really liked it. Thought provoking - especially useful for his review of American foreign policy.

Oh American radical thought, you have exposed me to so many books. Pat Buchanan is insane but still makes sense. I don't get it either, but it is interesting.
