about

Expanded from the original edition to include the post-Cold War era, Making American Foreign Policy explores the struggle between the President and the Congress to shape U.S. foreign policy from World War II, through Vietnam and "Operation Desert Storm," to the Clinton Administration's policy in Somalia. Case studies make the book especially useful for classroom teaching and the six common themes identified give students a more focused understanding of foreign policy formulation.
Philip J. Briggs is professor of political science at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania

Editorial Reviews

The author goes beyond the tugs of power between the White House and Capitol Hill. He examines the threads in that rope of tension: constitutional issues, key actors, communication links and the historical precedent that together fashion contemporary American foreign policy.
