Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a very creative, broad-ranging evaluation of the changing status and current state of foreign policy analysis. Provocative and insightful, it fills a major gap in the literature and should command a wide audience and much critical attention." --Charles W. Kegley, Jr., University of South Carolina and President, International Studies Association, 1993-1994

"[A] rigorous and comprehensive assessment of [Foreign Policy Analysis]... that would be worth assigning both in general seminars and those devoted more directly towards comparative foreign policy.... Should be required reading for those already in the field of FPA and may help to generate interest from new scholars."--Patrick James, Perspectives on Politics
