The article focuses on the book "The American Approach to Foreign Policy," by Dexter Perkins. The history of American foreign policy has to a distressing extent been left to the antiquarians and apologists. There has been very little intellectual penetration, search for basic principles and clarification of general problems. Perkins is on less sure ground when he endeavors to develop "a cyclical theory of American foreign policy," dividing American history into a series of relatively short periods, alternating between peaceful and warlike tendencies.
