What is foreign policy? What do we know about why states pursue certain foreign policies and not others? What factors go into the shaping of foreign policy? Studying Foreign Policy Comparatively, Fourth Edition (formerly titled The New Foreign Policy), answers these questions, and more, by exploring how scholars analyze foreign policy and by applying this knowledge to new foreign policy cases.
Benefits of the fourth edition:
·Every chapter is devoted to a distinct level in the levels-of-analysis approach
·Provides easy-to-understand explanations and demonstrations of policy models and theories
·A mixture of current and historical cases from around the world extends students’ knowledge of foreign policy and understanding of contemporary problems
·New cases include the refugee crisis in Europe, rising populism and anti-immigrant coalition governments, Russian use of media, and China’s Belt and Road Initiative
