Overview

Originally published in 1991, Explaining the History of American Foreign Relations has become an indispensable volume, for teachers and students in international history and political science, and general readers seeking an introduction to American diplomatic history. This collection of essays highlights the conceptual approaches and analytical methods used to study the history of American foreign relations, including bureaucratic, dependency, and world systems theories, as well as corporatist and national security models. Along with substantially revised essays from the first edition, this volume presents new material on postcolonial theory, borderlands history, modernization theory, gender, race, memory, cultural transfer, and critical theory. It seeks to define the study of American international history, stimulate research in fresh directions, and encourage cross-disciplinary thinking, in an increasingly transnational, globalizing world.
