Because policy actions are always taken within a value context, this comprehensive text uses values and beliefs as the basic organizing theme. The book portrays the way values and beliefs about foreign policy have changed over the course of U.S. history and how foreign policy has changed from its earliest years through the post-9/11 years and beyond. In addition, the book demonstrates how the values and beliefs of a variety of domestic actors affect the foreign policy decision making process.
