This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book offers an analytical reconstruction of Carl Schmitt's interpretation of American foreign policy on the backdrop of the apparent paradox in the reception of his legacy in America and Europe. It approaches the peculiar US vocation for nation-building on a global scale from the perspective of domestic experience. The book considers the extraordinary vision of an 'Anglo-world' developed in the last decades of the nineteenth century by the Scots-American magnate Andrew Carnegie. It reviews the initial, often critical reception of Clash of Civilizations and seeks to explain why the text has continued to enjoy such widespread attention. The book provides a politico-intellectual biography of Paul Wolfowitz from 1969 until he took up service in the administration of George W. Bush.
