America's overseas Garrisons analyses the political and social problems, which arise when American forces are stationed in other countries. The United States, although critical of the British Empire during the Second World War, found itself playing an imperial role in the post-war era in order to safeguard the security of the west. In building up a global security system, with American troops in Europe, the Far East, the Atlantic, and the Caribbean and the Pacific, the United States came to resemble the former colonial powers. But whereas the colonial empire had established garrisons on territory acquired by force, the United States was obliged to negotiate basing rights for their troops by negotiating with independent sovereign states. The result was a variety of arrangements with different host nations, in which the American position, and the use America could make of her troops overseas, was critically dependant of America's political and historical relationship with the country concerned. The United States has based more troops overseas than any of the colonial empires. However, the terms of the leasehold empire have imposed severe constraints on America's freedom of manoeuvre.
