Pragmatism has been called the chief glory of our countrys intellectual tradition by its supporters and a dogs dinner by its detractors. While acknowledging pragmatisms direct ties to American imperialism and expansionism, Chad Kautzer,MorePragmatism has been called the chief glory of our countrys intellectual tradition by its supporters and a dogs dinner by its detractors. While acknowledging pragmatisms direct ties to American imperialism and expansionism, Chad Kautzer, Eduardo Mendieta, and the contributors to this volume consider the role pragmatism plays, for better or worse, in current discussions of nationalism, war, race, and community.

What can pragmatism contribute to understandings of a diverse nation? How can we reconcile pragmatisms history with recent changes in the countrys racial and ethnic makeup? How does pragmatism help to explain American values and institutions and fit them into new national and multinational settings? The answers to these questions reveal pragmatisms role in helping to nourish the fundamental ideas, politics, and culture of contemporary America.
