Now in its fourth edition, this comprehensive survey of the interaction between domestic and international politics shows how public opinion, interest groups, the media, the intelligence establishment, and the different branches of American government influence U.S. foreign policy formulation. National security issues in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001, provide the thematic tension for this new edition. Sixteen new and updated essays highlight foreign policy development and innovation in key arenas including Cuba, Afghanistan, and the war on terrorism. Prominent contributors—including Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Stanley Hoffmann, and Fred I. Greenstein—from the academic and policy communities combine practical and theoretical perspectives to offer this well-rounded complement to courses in American government, foreign policy, and international relations.
