The Anglosphere: a genealogy of a racialized identity in international relations

The Anglosphere: a genealogy of a racialized identity in international relations

Vucetic, Srdjan, 1976-

This text argues that the origins of the Anglosphere are racial. Drawing on theories of collective identity-formation, it develops a framework for analyzing foreign policy, which it evaluates in case studies related to imperialism, the ill-fated Pacific Pact, the Suez crisis, the Vietnam escalation and the Iraq War. The Anglosphere refers to a community of English-speaking states, nations, and societies centered on Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, which has profoundly influenced the direction of world history and fascinated countless observers. This book argues that the origins of the Anglosphere are racial. Drawing on theories of collective identity-formation and framing, the book develops a new framework for analyzing foreign policy, which it then evaluates in case studies related to fin-de-sicle imperialism (1894-1903), the ill-fated Pacific Pact (1950-1), the Suez crisis (1956), the Vietnam escalation (1964-5), and the run-up to the Iraq war (2002-3). Each case study highlights the contestations over state and empire, race and nation, and liberal internationalism and anti-Americanism, taking into consideration how they shaped international conflict and cooperation. In reconstructing the history of the Anglosphere, the book engages directly with the most recent debates in international relations scholarship and American foreign policy
