America Right or Wrong: An Anatomy of American Nationalism quotes

…American culture historically has embodied a strain of isolationism. This isolationism is, however, a complex phenomenon which should not be understood simply as a desire to withdraw from the world. Rather American isolationism forms another another face of both American Chauvinism and American Messaisnism, in the form of a belief in America as a unique city on the hill.
(Lieven 2005: 3)
