Only 6 left in stock (more on the way). Passmore. Hook and Spanier's text is clear, concise, and it covers the period since the September 11 terrorist attacks more skillfully than any comparable text I've seen. Hook, John W. Spanier.

Truman built a foreign policy on the foundation of fundamental Americanism, . International RelationsJOHN W. American Foreign Policy Since World War II. Pp. viii, 234. SPANIER

The U.S. enters the 21st century uncertain of its international role. Despite its economic and military predominance in the post Cold War era, the U.S. struggles as a nation, propelled toward detachment yet engaged in moral crusading.

I have read Spanier's analysis for nearly 40 years, concise, coherent and cutting. He spends no time beating around the bush. This edition adds the difficult topic of the war on terrorism. He and Hook do a fantastic job of laying the causes of our involvement after the Cold War in creating a new enemy. But this one was nonterritorial, non-national and on non-traditional fronts. For those who've never read Spanier, this one is worth its weight in gold.
This was the text book in my American Foreign Policy class, where of course I didn't read it. But then I got a crappy mall job and I read it cover to cover to kill time. It was an engrossing and easy read. It presents post-WW2 foreign policy in a simple but thorough manner. It further explains indispensable concepts in clean continuous narrative. It has to be the best text book I've ever read.
I was amazed how once adopted a policy can shape the destiny of a country for eternity.
This book is pretty informative, though it's more like a text book than I thought it would be. Dry and without any real philosophical perspective, there's lots of information but little in the way of insight, imo. For my taste, history is about putting things into context and extrapolating insight from past events. This book doesn't go that far, just a recitation of events in the past.

This book is informative, well written and sophisticated enough to serve as a college textbook on American foreign policy. The text lacks cohesion at times and there are certain points that leave you wishing there was more detail. There is a slight bias to the left, but it has little effect on the content.
Top notch condition but no idea why it's so expensive.
Great insight for my FP course, complementing a theoretical review with the practical exercise of the policy. I particularly liked the insights on local politics and the interaction of the Presidents with the Congress.
This book is used in my American Foreign Policy class, but it is very easy to read. Not bad for a "textbook"
Interesting information....
