Foreign Policy Analysis : Continuity and Change in Its Second Generation
Through a broad-reaching collection of readings, this text illustrates the recent "second generation" scholarship in foreign policy analysis. Building on the first generation of scholarship, "Comparative Foreign Policy", this work has a more quantitative and "positivist" approach, using real-world examples blended with theoretical discussions to help bridge the theory and practice of foreign policy. It also includes introductory notes and critical thinking questions at the beginning of each chapter which help orient students to the readings. This text is intended for use on graduate level courses on American Foreign Policy, Foreign Policy-Making, and Policy Analysis in departments of political science.
