In this critical review essay I examine Neal Leavitt's treatment of John Rawls's views regarding a proper liberal foreign policy. I argue that Leavitt is only partially successful in characterizing the content of Rawls's view and that he largely misses the deep philosophical roots of the view understood as but one piece of Rawls's larger synoptic treatment of liberal democracy.
