The post-Cold War diplomacy of the United States evolved in stages that reflected changes in the international system. Through the 1990s, the nation's foreign affairs were marked by an evolution away from the post-World War II focus on security and superpower competition to a more multifaceted and nuanced series of policies that included economic concerns, social and cultural issues, and environmental matters. However, an escalating series of terrorist attacks that culminated in the 11 September 2001 strikes on New York and Washington, D.C. led to the reemergence of security as the main foreign policy issue for the United States. The subsequent American-led "war on terror" mirrored the Cold War in its goals, and the administration of President George W. Bush endeavored to build a multinational counterterrorism coalition that paralleled the Western alliance of the bipolar era.

The Historical Dictionary of U.S. Diplomacy Since the Cold War is a concise overview of the main figures, conflicts, events, and policies of the United States in the post-Cold War era. The study explores the main elements of U.S. foreign policy and the regional and international reaction to American policies from the presidency of George H. W. Bush to that of George W. Bush. Through its entries, the book analyzes the underlying themes of U.S. diplomacy and the new policies formulated and implemented in response to broad changes in global politics. The book includes a chronology of events from 1991 to 2007, an introduction that highlights important themes of the era, cross-referenced entries on significant topics, a detailed bibliography, and appendixes of major documents. The work is ideal for both public and academic libraries, the general public, or the specialist looking for a reference tool in this area.

About the Author:

Tom Lansford is the Assistant Dean for the College of Arts and Letters and an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Southern Mississippi.

From Booklist:

The sixth in the publisher’s Historical Dictionaries of U.S. Diplomacy series continues in the same format as the earlier titles. The author, a political scientist at Southern Mississippi University, has written extensively on international relations and national security. The main section contains 295 pages of entries on the very active last two decades for the U.S. and the world. The entries range from one paragraph to several pages and cover terms, treaties, organizations, people, places, and events. They are clearly written and accurate, although with some inevitable duplication. Information is current into 2007, such as North Korea agreeing to dismantle its nuclear program. The work is enhanced by a 17-page overview in the introduction, a 3-page list of acronyms and abbreviations, a 15-page chronology, cross-references, an appendix of excerpts from major speeches and documents, and a current 28-page bibliography, carefully arranged and developed. This balanced resource appears to be unique and would be useful in public and academic libraries. --Arthur Meyers
