A decent and accessible textbook that gets the job done.
Clear and concise, "U.S. Foreign Policy: The Paradox of World Power" is a great introductory text that educates the reader on the challenges of establishing foreign policy in an increasingly globalized world and an increasingly partisan American polity. Stephen W. Hook keeps the readers engaged with real world (and frequently updated) information and how elements of public policy shapes the global view of American primacy. A solid read for anyone interested in Political Science. One star docked
The book mainly discusses the process of foreign policy making and what factors play role in formulation of U.S. foreign policies. The book is not either a critique or support of American foreign policy but it basically talks about the process of policy development. Book is good for anyone interested in foreign affairs and gives a good insight about how foreign policies are made.
