How have US economic defence policies promoted its security since 1933?
US Policies of Economic Warfare, 1933-1991 concentrates on an important and neglected facet of America's fight for survival in the latter half of the twentieth century. It explains how US policy-makers crafted and used instruments of economic statecraft against states that posed vital threats to the survival of the USA. This study situates economic defence policy within the broad context of US foreign policy and explores its response to the totalitarianism of the 1930s, the Second World War and the complex strategic and political developments of the Cold War.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...a masterful account of how economic security policy intertwined with national defense, diplomacy, and domestic politics. He offers the definitive study on economic warfare of the era but also one that will be discussed and even contested for years.' Professor Tom Zeiler, University of Colorado at Boulder

'Dobson's book, the first comprehensive survey of US economic defence policy between 1931 and 1991, is not only an enormous research effort but also an original, intelligent and timely historical perspective on American politics and foreign policy in this century.' Alan Milward, University of Oxford

'This book is a definitive study of America's economic statecraft during the Cold War.' - Journal of American Studies
