I would suppose just to state that it is a College Textbook would be a review unto itself. I would rate it as a basically standard textbook - filled with pages of dry factual information. Yet, it did enhance my knowledge of the subject and I am better able to understand the hows and whys of some of the United States foreign policy issues and all the underlying facets that influence certain decisions. So, I have to give the book credit in that it fulfilled its stated purpose in life. But, unless you are a total political junkie I wouldn't recommend running to an online site to look for a used copy. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0534600484, Paperback)

AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY is the market leader for the American foreign policy course. Guiding students through 21st century American foreign policy by placing contemporary issues, debates, challenges, and opportunities in their historic context, this text helps students understand and assess the forces underlying continuity and change. This Sixth Edition retains the book's effective analytical framework. Harnessing the conceptual, theoretical, and historical components that facilitate analysis of American foreign policy, the text maintains that five sources--international, societal, governmental, role, and individual--collectively influence decisions about foreign policy goals and the means chosen to realize them. Readers will come away from this text with knowledge of how the enduring principles, values and interests of the United States (peace and prosperity, stability and security, democracy and defense) define and reinforce the ability of policymakers to respond to changes in the international environment.
