American Umpire

by Elizabeth Cobbsvia Books by Hoover Fellows
Wednesday, March 6, 2013

As the presiding superpower, the United States has frequently been labeled an empire whose actions, constructive, destructive, and benign have deep consequences on the world stage. In her latest book, Hoover Research Fellow Elizabeth Cobbs argues that since the nation's formation, the United States has performed the role of umpire, compelling the nations of the world to adhere to rules that have gradually formed the norms of modern statecraft.
