What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"In this concise and well-crafted collection, Jeremi Suri captures the extraordinary complexity of America's relations with the wider world across more than a century.  The book will be a 'go-to' resource for students of U.S. foreign relations."
Mark Atwood Lawrence, University of Texas at Austin

"This valuable collection of documents reflects three major trends in scholarly work on U.S. foreign relations today: the stress on sub-state level activities, cultural themes, and the global setting. The documents contain examples in all three areas and enable the reader to come to a deeper understanding of the nation's engagement with the world."
Akira Iriye, Harvard University
