Whereas the colonial empires had established garrisons on territory acquired by conquest, the United States was obliged to secure basing rights for her troops through negotiation with independent sovereign states. The result was a variety of arrangements with different host nations, in which the position of the United States, and the use she could make of her forces overseas, was determined by her historical, political, and security relationship with the country concerned. This network of varied and complex relations with individual host nations is characterized here as 'The Leasehold Empire'."--Jacket." ;
