Edward Rhodes’s research investigates core questions of American foreign and national security policy and of international behavior. A principal focus of his work has been on the intellectual foundations of America’s engagement with the world outside its borders, particularly on the effect of alternative understandings of liberalism, democracy, and republicanism in shaping American attitudes toward intervention and global involvement.
