Overview

With the U.S. armed forces playing an ever increasing central role in American foreign policy, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the role of regional Commanders-in-Chief (CINCs) in both implementing and shaping relations with various countries.

This book explores the role these military commanders play in contemporary U.S. foreign policy.
