Review quote

With its remarkable combination of cutting-edge theoretical analysis and wide-ranging case studies, this volume is an outstanding resource for students, teachers, and researchers alike. Clearly written, accessible, and yet sophisticated, it provides an invaluable guide for addressing the challenges of foreign policy analysis in contemporary world politics. * Professor Michael C Williams, University of Ottawa * For the hard pressed student looking for a quality text dealing with a broad range of issues in the field of Foreign Policy Analysis there is none better than this tried and true - and now completely updated- volume. * Professor Michael Cox, Professor Emeritus of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Director LSE IDEAS * This is one of the very few efforts that creates a truly useful comparative basis for foreign policy analysis, both in terms of applying alternative theoretical perspectives and a rich array of cases across important states. * Professor Thomas J. Volgy, Professor of Political Science, School of Government and Public Policy, University of Arizona * Maintaining the gold standard in the teaching and study of foreign policy, this revised edition inter alia adds topical new material on the brutal Syrian conflict and the ever-growing public dimensions of foreign policy. History, theory and practice are expertly woven into this comprehensive and impressive book, featuring both leading and emerging scholars in the field. * Professor Geoffrey Wiseman, Australian National University *
