Debuting in its first edition, Cases in American Foreign Policy is a unique country-by-country analysis of American national interests in the 21st century. Emphasizing the daily conduct of foreign policy, each of the 12 original case studies looks at what interests are at stake, what domestic and international factors affect the realization of those interests, and what scenarios exists for future U.S. relations. Drilling past theoretical generalization and looking at the specific characteristics and history of each relationship, Cases in American Foreign Policy not only assesses how American policymakers pursue their priorities but how foreign governments respond and demonstrate their willingness to work with the U.S.
