This text begins with the assertion that the environment in which foreign policy is made has changed since 1945, especially in the post-Cold War era. Prior to World War II, the nonpartisan, virtually nonpolitical nature of foreign policy was captured in the idea that politics ended at "the water's edge." The authors assert, however, that in the post-Cold War era politics extends well beyond a nation's borders.
