Steven W. Hook
Prentice Hall, 2002 - Political Science - 288 pages
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.
