Now in its third edition, this comprehensive survey of the interaction between domestic and international politics shows how public opinion, interest groups, the media, the intelligence establishment, and the different branches of American government influence U.S. foreign policy formulation. Globalization and fragmentation provide the thematic tension for the new edition. Sixteen new essays highlight foreign policy development and innovation in key arenas including Bosnia and China, the civilian-military context, and trade. Prominent contributors from the academic and policy communities combine practical and theoretical perspectives to offer this well-rounded complement to courses in American government, foreign policy, and international relations.
