9781133602156: Cengage Advantage Books: The Politics of United States Foreign Policy

A definitive work on U.S. foreign policymaking, THE POLITICS OF UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY: ADVANTAGE SERIES, 6E uses three levels of analysis to demonstrate how government, society, and the historical-global environment all impact policymaking. Focusing more on the process of creating policy than the history, this comprehensive text blends substance, history, and theory in a lively narrative that is engaging, accessible, and informative. Streamlined and up to date, the Sixth Edition presents theory in the context of the most current coverage available, including the 2012 elections, the new Congress, the global economic crisis, updates on the wars and crises abroad, the Obama administration's foreign policy, and more. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

About the Author:

Jerel A. Rosati is Professor of Political Science and International Studies at the University of South Carolina. His area of specialization is the theory and practice of foreign policy, focusing on the U.S. policymaking process, bureaucratic politics and decision-making theory, and the political psychological study of political leaders and human cognition. He is the author and editor of five books and over seventy articles and chapters. The recipient of numerous outstanding teaching awards, Prof. Rosati has been a Fulbright Senior Specialist and/or a Visiting Scholar in Colombia at the University of Los Andes in Bogota, Armenia at the Institute of Democracy & Human Rights in Yerevan, Argentina at the University of San Andreas in Buenos Aires, at Somalia National University in Mogadishu, and at China's Foreign Affairs College in Beijing. He also served as a research associate in the Foreign Affairs and National Defense Division of the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress, president of the International Studies Association's Foreign Policy Analysis Section, and president of the Southern region of the International Studies Association. In 2002 he was the principal investigator, program director and academic director of a six-week U.S. Department of State Fulbright American Studies Institute on U.S. Foreign Policy for 18 scholars-practitioners from all over the world. In addition, he has been awarded and participated in a number of grants since 1984 as academic director, field director, and/or project director where he has taught-trained students, scholars, and practitioners from around the world, including Argentineans, Armenians, Bulgarians, Chinese, Colombians, Israelis and Palestinians, and Somalis.

James M. Scott is Herman Brown Chair and Professor of Political Science at Texas Christian University. His areas of specialization include foreign policy analysis and international relations, with particular emphasis on U.S. foreign policymaking and the domestic sources of foreign policy. He is author or editor of seven books (including this one), and over 60 articles, book chapters, review essays, and other publications. He has been conference organizer and president of both the Foreign Policy Analysis section of the International Studies Association, and the Midwest region of the International Studies Association. He has also been a two-time winner of the Klingberg Award for Outstanding Faculty Paper at the ISA Midwest Annual Meeting. Since 1996 he has received over two dozen awards from students and peers for his outstanding teaching and research, including his institution's highest awards for scholarship (2000 and 2001), teaching (2002) and research mentoring (2002). He directed the Democracy Interdependence and World Politics Summer Research Program, a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates, from 2005-2014, and he is currently an associate editor of FOREIGN POLICY ANALYSIS. In 2012, he received the Quincy Wright Distinguished Scholar Award from the International Studies Association - Midwest for outstanding scholarship and service.

Review:

"...after presenting the theoretical framework for studying foreign policy in Chapter 1, the authors comprehensively cover U.S. history in that area over five defined periods. Second, the Rosati-Scott book's utilization of the three themes--but particularly the democracy v. national security dichotomy--provides a basis for diverse, non-traditional assessments and exercises."

"Compared to its competitors, THE POLITICS OF UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY offers the most thorough and exhaustive overview of the institutional settings of American foreign policy."

"THE POLITICS OF UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY is the best text available for understanding the structure and function of government departments and agencies and branches as they strive to implement American foreign policy."

"It is really the best single source on all aspects of the policy process."

"This is the single best textbook for one-stop shopping on the making of American foreign policy after 9/11, not just for American students, but for students around the world who want to understand the processes behind American policies that profoundly affect their own countries and the world at large."
