Rise to Globalism: American Foreign Policy Since 1938 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I enjoyed this book. Ambrose gives a good overview of U.S. foreign policy during this period, and although I did not always agree with his analysis, he offers thoughtful insights into why certain politicians and military officials acted as they did. I also found that the chapters on the Vietnam War brought into startling relief the similarities between that war and the current war in Iraq.
