Leo Strauss and the Politics of American Empire

by Anne Norton
£9.99   paperback  Yale University Press (2005)

Leo Strauss and the Politics of American Empire by Anne Norton The teachings of political theorist Leo Strauss (1899-1973) have received renewed attention as observers have become aware of the influence Strauss's students have had in shaping conservative agendas of the Bush administration - including the war on Iraq. Anne Norton examines Strauss's ideas and the ways in which they have been appropriated, or misappropriated, by senior policymakers. She tells 3 interwoven narratives: the story of Leo Strauss, a Jewish German-born emigre, who carried European philosophy into a new world; the story of the philosophic lineage that came from Strauss; and the story of how America has been made a moral battleground by the likes of Paul Wolfowitz, Leon Kass, Carnes Lord and Irving Kristol - Straussian conservatives committed to an American imperialism they believe will usher in a new world order.
