U.S. Foreign Policy in Action represents a distinctive offering in the US Foreign Policy textbook market. It combines a primer on US foreign policy with case studies and active learning exercises to put the history, theory, institutions, and actors in motion. It offers a framework for analyzing the foreign policy decision-making process through a lens of political debate and exchange. While many textbooks on the market today address relevant theories and issues in foreign policy analysis, few provide students with a rich understanding of the politics behind clashing perspectives on contemporary foreign policy challenges. Fewer still offer exercises for engagement in the dynamics of foreign policy decisions--embedded directly in the text to help guide instructors and students. In short, this book presents an exciting alternative for teachers and students of US foreign policy. It is designed to bring the politics of foreign policy to life-encouraging critical reflection on contending perspectives in political debates, detailing relevant historical background, promoting research and engagement, and providing analytical exercises in resolving foreign policy dilemmas. It is intended to serve as a core text for classes on US foreign policy and will also appeal to a broad audience interested in trends in foreign policy decision-making in the Trump administration and beyond.New to the Second Edition*Award winning teacher-scholar Jeffrey Lantis is joined by Patrick Homan whose research focuses on US foreign policy dynamics including the role of Congress in the foreign policy process and the politics of arms control.
