If I’ve been a little slow with my blog and vlog lately, it’s because I was wrapping up this article. The full title is “The Decline of Military Adventurism in the Conservative Big Tent: Why Grassroots Conservatives in the United States are Embracing a more cautious foreign policy“. I cannot post the entire article here, but it is a free, open access journal provided by Sage Publications. You can either read it directly on their website, or have a PDF emailed to you. Just follow the hyperlink I just gave. I can at least post the abstract, as follows:
It is now clear that the American conservative movement can no longer be easily categorized as “hawkish” on foreign policy. This essay examines the different perspectives, ranging from intellectuals and experts to grassroots conservatives and popular political culture, to grasp the widening range of foreign policy preferences that currently make up the conservative movement (or conservative big tent). Second, this essay considers the challenges that these hawks, mainly the neoconservatives, are likely to face due to the realities of generational politics. This essay will therefore provide a useful analysis of the different foreign policy preferences in the American conservative movement in the 21st century.
