The Revised First Edition of Readings in U.S. Foreign Policy introduces undergraduate students to the historical foundations of American foreign policy; key theoretical approaches to the study of foreign policymaking; the central actors, institutions, and political processes of U.S. foreign policy; and contemporary challenges to U.S. primacy in the 21st century. This revised first edition includes recent essays on the latest developments in the Middle East including the Arab Spring and the likely impact these revolutions will have on jihadist groups and, by extension, American counter-terrorism efforts.

Features: 

  • Seminal articles on foreign policy decision-making and U.S. foreign policy
  • Introductory essays for each section that provide a historical and theoretical context to each of the works
  • Critical thinking questions on separate, tear-out sheets to encourage further reflection on each piece
  • Recommended readings for students interested in studying the topics presented in more depth
