Conclusion: Foreign Policy and Democracy

(p.227) Chapter Eight Conclusion: Foreign Policy and Democracy
The Foreign Policy Disconnect
University of Chicago Press

This chapter summarizes and discusses the main conclusions. The findings that the American public has stable, consistent, and sensible preferences concerning a wide range of foreign policies, and that those preferences are based on coherent, logical, purposive belief systems, contradict a good deal of conventional wisdom. But they also support the main argument of this book: that the officials who make U.S. foreign policy should pay more attention to what the public wants.
