Ruether, Rosemary Radford:
America, Amerikkka: Elect Nation and Imperial Violence - used book

ISBN: 9781845531584

ID: 7503591

America, Amerikkka traces the historical and ideological patterns of the U.S. American view of themselves as an elect nation inhabiting a "promised land" and enjoying a uniquely favored relation with God and a mission to spread "redemption" qua "democracy" throughout the world. This view of unique election has been coupled with racial exclusivism privileging and marginalizing non-whites as citizens of the nation. In the 18th and 19th centuries a doctrine of the "rights of man" excluded the two primary non-white groups present in the territory, Native Americans and Africans. "Manifest Destiny" justified the expansion across the North American continent, while forcing Mexico through war to cede a third of its land, excluding Mexicans, Indians, Africans and Asians from this expanded citizenry. In the 20th century, the American perception of its mission became imperialist beyond the continental borders, occupying the Philippines and the Caribbean and claiming hegemonic dominance over Latin America and the Pacific islands. After the Second World War, the United States has taken the role of the "Global policeman" to enforce neocolonial relations over much of the "third world." Since the collapse of the Soviet Union this imperial reach has been translated into a claim for global dominance. The book also details alternative protest traditions within American culture against this trajectory of imperial violence and racism in leaders such as Martin Luther King. It seeks to formulate an alternative vision of global relations between peoples based on justice and mutuality, rather than hegemonic dominance of a "number one" nation over all others.
