Debuting in its first edition, American Foreign Policy in a New Era takes the contemporary challenges of globalization and hyper-partisanship as its starting point, and surveys how foreign policy is made and to what ends. This brief text is not only a review of theory, history, actors, institutions, and key policies but also an examination of how policymakers are affected by domestic and international political factors. Telling a uniquely engaging story of how foreign policy is made, American Foreign Policy in a New Era help readers understand the changing leadership role of the United States and the effect of world politics on the everyday life of Americans.

Editorial Reviews

"The answer is here! Snow and Haney weave together a comprehensive account of American foreign policy that demystifies a complex array of ideas, processes, actors, and contexts and analyze the challenges created by globalization, intermestic issues, and a hyper-partisan policy environment. U.S. foreign policy instructors will be hard pressed to find a book that does more or better in the same number of pages.”–Douglas Foyle, Wesleyan University
