Addressing both foreign policy strategy and foreign policy politics, Bruce Jentleson-respected scholar, award-winning teacher, and foreign policy practitioner-offers students the theoretical framework, historical context, and policy analysis essential for understanding American foreign policy in the twenty-first century.
Professor Jentleson focuses on foreign policy strategy and foreign policy politics and employs a four-part framework (the four Ps: Power, Peace, Prosperity, and Principles) through which students can begin to appreciate the problems and choices faced by the United States as it tries to steer a course through world events.
The Fourth Edition of American Foreign Policy has been thoroughly updated with relevant political developments, including foreign policy changes instituted by the Obama administration.
