"If foreign policy is your game, whether you're a player, a fan, a critic, or a student, keep this volume handy at your work station. It's a guide book, a how-to book, an insider's book, an outsider's book all in one. David Newsom has to be the ultimate professional in this vital American pastime." —William German, Editor, 'San Francisco Chronicle

"Out of his vast experience as a diplomat, scholar and interlocutor with the American press, David Newsom has written a thorough yet lively review of the many public and political factors that affect the making of U.S. foreign policy. He cites chapter and verse from Angola to Yugoslavia in explaining and analyzing the external pressures on contemporary U.S. diplomacy." —Don Oberdorfer, Journalist-in-residence, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies; Former Washington Post diplomatic correspondent

How does U.S. foreign policy get made? Here, former Under Secretary of State and Ambassador David Newsom offers a long-term insider’s view of how our foreign policy is shaped—and sometimes mis-shaped.
