Long admired as the most comprehensive and accessible survey available, U.S. Diplomacy Since 1900, has now been revised and update for a fifth edition. The book traces the major events in the history of U.S. foreign relations from the Spanish-American War to the present. Robert D. Schulzinger, one of the nation's premier historians of U.S. foreign relations, explains how U.S. foreign policy is made and discusses public ideas about foreign relations. The narrative places U.S. foreign relations in the context of the growing interdependence and globalization of international affairs. Updated to include a complete account of the Clinton administration, this new edition explains how both the Clinton and Bush administrations came to grips with the post-Cold War world. The book now includes new material on the ways in which Americans remember the Vietnam War. The selected bibliography has undergone its most extensive revisions since the book was first published. In this text, students will find the most recent scholarship, much of which has been informed by insights from related disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.
Distinguished by its combination of narrative and analysis and by its in-depth explanations of how and why policy is made, the new edition of the U.S. Diplomacy Since 1900 remains an invaluable resource for students of international history, foreign relations, and political science.show more
