Crises in U.S. Foreign Policy by Michael H Hunt
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Repeatedly in the twentieth century, the United States has been involved in confrontations with other countries, each with the potential for widespread international and domestic upheaval, even disaster. In this book Michael Hunt focuses on seven such crises, presenting for each an illuminating introduction and a rich collection of original documents. His epilogue considers the nature of international crises and the U.S. record in dealing with them. The case studies include: *the American entry into World War I the Japanese-American rivalry that led to Pearl Harbor *the origins of the U.S.-Soviet Cold War *the collision between China and the United States during the Korean War *the confrontation over Soviet missiles in Cuba *Lyndon Johnson`s commitment to war in Vietnam *and the American entanglement in the Iranian revolution The studies allow the reader to see U.S. foreign policymaking firsthand and to understand it as something that is shaped by interactions with other nations and leaders as well as by American values, attitudes, and needs. To provide an international perspective, both the narrative and the documents give as much attention to foreign policymakers as to their American counterparts, emphasizing the invariably dynamic, often confused, and sometimes chaotic interaction between the two sides.
