About this title
This book examines the history of US foreign policy since the Vietnam War. It focuses on four themes: the legacy of Vietnam; the ending and aftermath of the Cold War; the debate over American international decline; and the frequently undemocratic conduct of US foreign policy. The book considers alternative explanations for the Cold War's end. It evaluates the foreign policy leadership of Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton and assesses prospects for US foreign policy after the Cold War.From the Back Cover:
Between the Presidencies of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, the assumptions, basis and context of American foreign policy was altered beyond recognition. American Foreign Policy: Carter to Clinton examines this momentous era in terms of four organising themes. First, it traces the legacy of the Vietnam conflict as it affected foreign policy under Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton. Second, it examines the ending of the Cold War and assesses the propects for post-Cold War US foreign relations. Third, the book considers the debate over America's post-Vietnam international decline. Finally, it describes the conduct of US foreign policy since 1977, noting the degree to which such conduct has tended to be both undemocratic and unaccountable.
