From the promulgation of the Monroe Doctrine to date American foreign policy has meekly followed in the wake of British imperial interests, according to this Anglophobe thesis. No one will object to Mr. Howe's advocating that in the conduct of its foreign relations the United States consult its own and not Britain's interests. However, his strange mélange of facts, accusations, rumors and hallucinations does not prove that American policy is the tail to the British kite, except in so far as our interests happen to coincide with Britain's -- which naturally is not infrequently.
