Organized chronologically by presidential administration, this text offers an account of American diplomatic history in the 20th century.

Each chapter presents the key foreign relations problems addressed by a particular presidential administration, and concludes with a short assessment of the accomplishments, events and problems of that administration.

Wesley M. Bagby, Professor of History, West Virginia University.Review:
"I like the book very much....The handling of the Cold War -- its causes and development and ending -- is, I think, quite admirable, as is the treatment of the Vietnam War. Throughout the book one sees a great deal of wisdom on the part of the author, and, if I may say so, a very mature
attitude toward important historical events"--Arthur S. Link, Former Professor at Princeton University
"It is a massive, clearly written, and well researched work. I learned a lot from it as can most other experts on U.S. diplomatic history."--Robert Schulzinger, University of Colorado at Boulder
"A straightforward and readable account of American foreign policy in the twentieth century. The focus on military crises makes the book invaluable for a military history course."--James A. Brown, Tougaloo College
