View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Offering students a strong sense of the real world implications of U.S. foreign policy, Rosati provides comprehensive topical coverage of the subject from three main perspectives: the government, society, and the global environment. Three critical themes - the historical patterns of continuity and change, the president's ability to govern, and the tension between the demands of democracy and national security - are covered throughout, often within in the context of current events.

"The detailed analysis of the institutional environment and policymaking process make this book superior to any other text on the market in this regard." --Matthew C. Zierler, Michigan State University.

"One clear strength of the book is the way it integrates theory with practice--not only by including chapter 10 but also by references to conceptual and theoretical material throughout the narrative. This makes the text useful for students because they can begin to make some of these connections for themselves and it enhances its use as a teaching tool." --John Creed, College of Charleston
