JAMES BURNHAM THE MACHIAVELLIANS PDF

Recommended by George F. Kennan , Burnham was invited to lead the "Political and Psychological Warfare" division of the Office of Policy Coordination, a semi-autonomous part of the agency. A contributor to The Freeman in the early s, he considered the magazine to be too focused on economic issues, as a matter of emphasis, and it presented a wide range of opinion on the question of how to react to the Soviet threat. In The Struggle for the World , he called for common citizenship between the United States and Great Britain and the English dominions, as well as a "World Federation" to fight communism. Burnham thought in terms of a unipolar world, instead of a balance of power: A World Federation initiated and led by the United States would be, we have recognized, a World Empire. In this imperial federation, the United States, with a monopoly of atomic weapons, would hold a preponderance of decisive material power over all the rest of the world.
