As we leave behind an era in which America tried to assert democracy by force (and often failed), the question arises: what part of our efforts to spread democracy can we preserve for the future? In The Freedom Agenda, James Traub traces the history of America’s democratic evangelizing, offering an assessment of the George W. Bush administration’s failed efforts abroad. And he puts forth the argument that democracy matters—for human rights, the resolution of conflicts, political stability and equitable development. But America must exercise caution in spreading it, both internationally and at home.
