A core text for courses in Comparative Foreign Policy, and a supplemental text for courses in Introduction to World Politics, Comparative Politics, and graduate seminars in Foreign Policy Analysis.

The first comprehensive, cross-national study of foreign policies to be published in the aftermath of the Cold War, this text is the direct successor to the classic, widely adopted Foreign Policy in World Politics by Roy Macridis (PH). Using a consistent format and accessible writing style, leading area specialists discuss the strategies employed by five "great powers" (The U.S., Russia, China, Japan, and the European Union), and five "emerging powers" (Brazil, India, Indonesia, Iran, and South Africa) to accommodate the rapid changes taking place around them. In all ten cases, major developments since the Cold War-including domestic upheavals and crises-have produced important consequences that extend far beyond their borders. Each chapter tells a distinct story of foreign policy adaptation, and collectively, they tell much of the story of world politics in this volatile era.
