Overview

Part of the Global Issues series, America's Role in the World is designed to be a first-stop resource for research on the key challenges facing the world today. Each volume contains three sections, beginning with an introduction that clearly defines the issue, followed by detailed case studies of the issue's affect in the United States and several other countries or regions. The second section draws together significant U.S. and international primary source documents, and the third section gathers useful research tools, such as brief biographies, facts and figures, an annotated bibliography, and more. A foreword written by an expert in the field complements each volume. A chronology, glossary, and index provide additional help.

When, where, and why should the United States use military force? How should America respond to globalization? Do the institutions created or endorsed by the United States after World War II-such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank-still work, and, if not, what can be done to fix them? America's Role in the World examines these questions and more, beginning with a detailed history of U.S. foreign policy and the debates over its future direction. It then surveys the U.S. role in foreign affairs from the perspectives of Europe, Latin America, the Islamic world, Asia, and Russia. This well-written volume is ideal for students preparing reports or debate assignments, as well as those looking for a clear and balanced introduction to U.S. foreign policy.
