Completely revised and updated, THE POLITICS OF UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY shows how government, society, and the global environment-the three basic levels of analysis-affect the real world of politics and the policymaking process. The text addresses presents three critical themes: dominant patterns of continuity and change in the foreign policy process, the President's ability to govern, and the tensions between the demands of democracy and those of national security. Not only are important institutions covered, but also the reader is given an-depth view into the policymaking process, and is linked to evidence emphasizing the dynamic nature of politics. It offers a blend of substance, theory and history, and is accessible and interesting, making it appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students alike.
