From the Publisher
“This is a well-written, comprehensive analysis of political culture and its impact on foreign policy. It’s a welcome addition to the work being done on national belief systems, values, attitudes, and traditions and their impact on foreign policy-making processes. This book is what social science research is all about — presentation and confirmation of useful middle-range theories. It is a good, solid piece of research that covers an important topic area.” — Steven Lamy, University of Southern California

“This is an excellent book that breaks new ground by focusing on the role of political culture in shaping foreign policy. The work is outstanding; it is a quality book of significant merit.” — Howard J. Wiarda, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
