Overview

Between the Presidencies of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, the assumptions, basis and context of American foreign policy was altered beyond recognition. American Foreign Policy: Carter to Clinton examines this momentous era in terms of four organising themes. First, it traces the legacy of the Vietnam conflict as it affected foreign policy under Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton. Second, it examines the ending of the Cold War and assesses the propects for post-Cold War US foreign relations. Third, the book considers the debate over America's post-Vietnam international decline. Finally, it describes the conduct of US foreign policy since 1977, noting the degree to which such conduct has tended to be both undemocratic and unaccountable.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A British scholar of American studies explores how the assumptions, basis, and context of US foreign policy had radically changed in the 12 years between Democratic presidents. He looks at such issues as the legacy of the Vietnam war, the end of the Cold War and its impact on US foreign relations, the post- Vietnam US decline, and the undemocratic and unaccountable conduct of foreign policy since 1977.
