Overview

This exciting new issues-based text can act as a supplement or main text in American foreign policy. It analyzes a variety of ongoing and emerging foreign policy issues in evolutionary context.

Each chapter of Issues in American Foreign Policy introduces one or more of the principle problems facing the United States today and provides ample historical background and theoretical context so readers can more fully understand the ramifications of each issue. The text takes the readers right up to the present, exposes them to different viewpoints and encourages them to develop their own ideas on each issue by including end-of-chapter “Up for Debate” sections. Finally, the text shows readers that many issues in American foreign policy are related. By discussing the interrelatedness of these problems, readers see how action taken on one foreign policy issue may have serious consequences for one or more other issues–and serious consequences for the-well being of the U.S. and the rest of the world.
