The study of foreign policy has become detached from the system-level analysis of international relations. This volume uses the constructivist approach to tear down that wall. The essays in Part I introduce constructivism for foreign policy studies. Part II presents five model case studies. In part III, Ralph Pettman and Paul Kowert review the results.
