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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Well-researched, well-reasoned, and well-argued . . . an extremely useful casebook for classroom use. -- Donald A. Ritchie, associate historian, U.S. Senate Historical Office; author of Doing Oral History
The perpetual competition for control over America's foreign policy that takes place between the President and the Congress comes to life in Professor Brigg's insightful case studies. He conveys Washington's power game with accuracy and verve. -- Daniel Pipes, director, Middle East Forum; author of Militant Islam Comes to America
The case studies themselves are quite useful. Each provides a fairly detailed account of the setting and major developments in the policy process. * Presidential Studies Quarterly Review *
A timely contribution to a recurring problem-sorting out the respective roles of the president and the Congress in the conduct of American foreign policy. His case studies are well chosen. -- Lawrence S. Kaplan, emeritus director, Lyman L. Lemnitzer Center for NATO and European Union Studies
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. -- John J. Kornacki, executive director, The Dirksen Congressional Center
