This chapter discusses the liberal grand strategy that the US had adopted as the new global hegemon in the 1990s. The chapter analyzes why this strategy was chosen and to what extent did it accord with the expectations of the book’s theoretical model. The strategy focused on liberalizing former opponents (and others), notably China and Russia and also the rise of humanitarian interventions. The strategy adopted by the US in the first post-Cold War decade largely accords with defensive liberalism.

Keywords:   Bill Clintion, George Bush Sr., humanitarian intervention, democratic peace theory, free trade, economic interdependence, globalization, unipolarity
