Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I always return to Glenn Hastedt’s text to teach students how American foreign policy is made. It has just the right amount of background and detail either for beginners with a general interest in the subject or for advanced students of politics.”—Robert J. Bookmiller, Millersville University
