Now in its Seventh Edition, AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY has been thoroughly revised and updated to include several completely new sections, reflecting the most recent developments and scholarship related to American foreign policy. This Seventh Edition provides considerable attention to how the Bush administration sought to reshape national strategy, policies and structures; its domestic and international actions taken in the name of national security, and the immediate as well as possible long-term consequences of these developments. As in past editions, the Seventh Edition retains the book's proven and pedagogically valuable analytical framework. Harnessing the conceptual, theoretical, and historical components that facilitate an analysis of American foreign policy, this text maintains five sources-international, societal, governmental, role, and individual-that collectively influence decisions about foreign policy goals, and the means chosen to realize them. Offering readers extraordinary breadth, thoughtful discussion, and in-depth of coverage of past, present, and future American foreign policy, AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY will equip readers with a solid and well-informed understanding of the full range of domestic and global sources of influence that will challenge American foreign policy-makers in the twenty-first century.

"AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY is very thorough and skillfully written....I can easily see why it is so successful. Few texts are as comprehensive, up to date in their citations of relevant research, and written with such clarity."
"This text is clearly written, well organized and comprehensive....It is a fine book and works well as a free-standing text for intermediate courses in American foreign policy."
"The book does an excellent job from the origins of the U. S. to the Cold War....and of illustrating the varied and interactive 'inputs' in the U. S. foreign policy process."
