The first comprehensive, cross-national study of foreign policies to be published in the aftermath of the Cold War. Using a consistent format, leading area specialists discuss the strategies employed by five "great powers" and five "emerging powers" to accommodate the rapid changes taking place around them. In all ten cases, major developments since the Cold War--including domestic upheavals and crises--have produced important consequences that extend far beyond their borders. Each chapter tells a distinct story of foreign policy adaptation, and collectively, they tell much of the story of world politics in this volatile era. New Challenges In U.S. Foreign Policy. Russia's Times Of Trouble. European Union Foreign Policy: Still An Oxymoron? Modernization, Nationalism, And Regionalism In China. Japanese Foreign Policy: Buying Power. The Foreign Policy Of Modern Brazil. The Shifting Landscape Of Indian Foreign Policy. Indonesia: From Pivot To Problem. Iran's Ambivalent World Role. South Africa: From The Shadows. For anyone interested in contemporary foreign policy worldwide.
