Why American Foreign Policy Fails: Unsafe at Home and Despised Abroad

Framhliđ kápu
Palgrave Macmillan, 15. apr. 2008 - 197 síđur
"The United States confronts today's world with a foreign policy that is neither consistent enough to be called a policy nor adequately responsive to foreign threats and opportunities. It is instead constructed in the marketplace of interests, and not ideas, that Washington has become. As a result, it is more likely to serve special interests rather than the national interest. This has come about because the end of the Cold War, globalization, and political partisanship have created a dysfunctional policy process. This book explores this change in U.S. foreign policy, examines the roles of the primary actors, ands assesses the potential for improvement."--Book cover.
