Opinion polls indicating fundamental strong public support for active American involvement in the world do not deﬁne policies for leaders, but do provide a solid base of support for policy-makers. The human, populist component of foreign policy can be harnessed in part through emphasis on humanitarian goals, in part through 26 America and the World emphasis on encouraging democracy, in part through further promo tion of market capitalism. A US president is on safe ground, for example, in drawing parallels between a nation of diversity and a world of diversity.
Reformers and researchers from time to time produce works, varying widely in quality, which argue that a totally new international system has arrived. The argument in this book is different – I hope. The sociological dimension to international relations has been strongly present and at times highly inﬂuential at least since the democratic revolutions in America and Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In the contemporary period, popular and populist sentiments have proven to be especially im portant, and played the decisive role in bringing down the Soviet empire and thus transforming the map of Europe.
American leaders, including but going beyond the president, have to be skillful at using the mass media to communicate with foreign as well as domestic publics. This also creates opportun ities for imaginative leadership involving direct communication with large publics. Here, Clinton’s active interest in appearing on televi sion overseas, in contrast to Reagan’s general media caution outside the USA – and, on occasion, the USSR – may prove instructive for various European and Asian democratic politicians.
