Overview

This important and original volume assesses what we now know about world politics and American foreign policy after more than a decade of the post-Cold War era, and the wider implications of this experience both for the U.S role in the 21st Century and for international relations more broadly. The chapter authors are leading authorities in their fields, and their contributions integrate both foreign and domestic setting for foreign policy. Part I looks at public opinion, debates about humanitarian intervention, the use of force in foreign conflicts, and congressional-executive relations in the making of foreign policy. Part II deals with the key regional issues confronting the United States, including the Middle East, Europe, Russia, China and East Asia, Latin America and Africa. Part III addresses major functional topics, including international economics and trade, defense policy, proliferation, “rogue” states, the environment, and America's relationship to the United Nations. For individuals interested in the United State's degree of international primacy—the impact of domestic politics on its world role, and the longer-term implications of foreign policy.
