Chronological History of U.S. Foreign Relations: 1989-2000
From the Treaty of Paris to the election of George W. Bush, this expanded and updated three-volume reference work is far more than a chronological listing. Beginning with a brief introductory section on the colonial period, followed by clear and comprehensive descriptions of every event concerning U.S. foreign relations on a year-to-year basis from 1776 to 2000, this reference provides full coverage of U.S. diplomatic history in over 1400 pages.
"Chronological History of U.S. Foreign Relations can be used as a timeline by those needing a quick reference, but the extensive chronological listings also provide in-depth information, thus scholars will use this work as a quick refresher on diplomatic history, and undergraduate and high school students will use it as a port of entry to a theme or time period in U.S.--and world--history.
The numerous cross-references and the thorough index will help readers follow themes and compare time periods. The 38 maps, included through out the book, willbe vital in the understanding of the many complex territorial disputes in which the U.S. has played a role.
With over one third new material, along with updated and revised entries and maps, this second edition will prove invaluable for all students of political science, history, and international relations.
