“American Grand Strategy and Corporate Elite Networks. The Open Door since the End of the Cold War” (Routledge 2016)

by Bastiaan van Apeldoorn and Naná de Graaff, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

American Grand Strategy and Corporate Elite Networks presents a novel analysis of how US grand strategy has evolved from the end of the Cold War to today, offering an integrated analysis of both continuity and change. The post-Cold War strategy has continued to be oriented to securing an ‘open door’ to US capital around the globe. This book will show that the three different administrations that have been in office in the post-Cold War era have pursued this goal with varying means: from Clinton’s promotion of neoliberal globalization to Bush’s ‘war on terror’ and Obama’s search to maintain US primacy in the face of a declining economy and a rising Asia. It takes as its point of departure the social sources of grand strategy (making), with the aim to relate state (public) power to social (private) power. While developing its own theoretical framework, it offers a rich and rigorous empirical analysis based on extensive primary data that have been collected over the past years, including extensive biographical data of 90 cabinet members and senior foreign policy officials.
