A concise text designed to be accessible to students by avoiding complicated jargon, UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY: POLITICS BEYOND THE WATER'S EDGE builds on the research, showing the process of policymaking and its outcomes in a reciprocal relationship. In addition, the author argues that politics is involved in the process intricately, and that this has been the case from World War II to the present. By using factual materials and anecdotes, and by avoiding highly theoretical discussions, students are engaged to learn how foreign policy is shaped and executed in a constantly changing environment and how it is applied to functional problems and different geographical regions.

"...This is one of the two or three best texts for US foreign policy, if not the best. The update is excellent."
"The current (text) is an effective revision and update of an already excellent textbook."
"Unlike other texts, this text is written at a high level. Frankly, I wish this revised text would have been available for my fall 2003 course."
