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 second edition includes recent essays focusing on current debates in U.S. foreign policy, such as how the U.S. should respond to the revolutions in the Arab world, the extent to which the U.S. is in decline, and the effectiveness of using drones as a principal tool of U.S. counterterrorism strategy.
