U.S. Diplomacy Since 1900 has long been admired as the most comprehensive and accessible survey available. Now in its sixth edition, the book traces the major events in the history of U.S. foreign relations, from the Spanish-American War to the present. Schulzinger explains how U.S. foreignpolicy is made and discusses public ideas about foreign relations. The engaging narrative places U.S. foreign relations in the context of the growing interdependence and globalization of international affairs. The text has been thoroughly updated to cover U.S. diplomacy post-9/11, including a discussion of whether or not the U.S. is an empire. This sixth edition also features new one-page profiles of significant or illustrative people, places, events or innovations that highlight themes of the chapters,and a short glossary of terms used in international affairs. In this text, students will find the most recent scholarship, much of which has been informed by insights from related disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Distinguished by its combination of narrative and analysis and by itsin-depth explanations of how and why policy is made, the sixth edition of U.S. Diplomacy Since 1900 is an invaluable resource for students of diplomatic history, foreign relations, and political science.
