This new edition of a textbook for undergraduate students relies on an analytical framework for understanding foreign policy that stresses five foreign policy forces the collectively influence foreign policy decisions. Separate sections devoted to the external environment, the societal environment, the governmental setting, policy maker roles, and individual characteristics of policy elites explore these influences, while introductory and concluding chapters attempt to integrate them in understandings of the history and future directions of American foreign policy.
