With an extremely accessible, engaging style, this brief, inexpensive book will provoke class discussions and motivate critical thinking through its analysis of American foreign policy. Loch Johnson, a renowned expert in the field, identifies and analyzes seven major shortcomings - "sins" - of American foreign policy that he argues have inspired the pervasive negative attitudes toward the United States today. The book, tackling a subject that is sure to be of central interest during the 2006 election year, will complement any American foreign policy course/book.
Dr. Loch K. Johnson is Regents Professor of Political Science at the University of Georgia. He is editor of the journal "Intelligence and National Security" and has written numerous books on american foreign policy.
