What People are Saying About This

Dorle Hellmuth

In keeping with the high standard of previous volumes, this sixth and thoroughly updated edition is yet another invaluable resource for students of U.S. foreign policy. First-rate contributions by policymakers and scholars offer complementary perspectives about the various societal, institutional, and individual factors that shape American foreign policy and drive decision-making processes. I highly recommend this book to both undergraduate and graduate students as well as anyone seeking to develop a comprehensive understanding of the domestic sources of American foreign policy.
