BUNDLE: The Paradox of World Power, 3e + U.S. Foreign Policy Today: American Renewal?

U.S. Foreign Policy: The Paradox of World Power, 3rd Edition The United States still faces no credible rival to challenge its supremacy, even after years of economic crisis and war. And yet, the very sources that give rise to its primacy&BAD:mdash;exceptionalism, the diffusion of power, and the involvement of civil society in the foreign policy process&BAD:mdash;also create vulnerabilities. The new third edition of U.S. Foreign Policy provides students with a concise and accessible overview of this foreign policy paradox, and highlights the challenges facing policy makers. Key updates include complete coverage of President Obama&BAD:rsquo;s first year in office, the administration&BAD:rsquo;s new emphasis on engagement, the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the economic crisis. Students will also find a thorough review of the lessons of the Bush administration, including examinations of the rivalry between the State and Defense Departments, intelligence breakdowns, human rights controversies, and unilateralism. Instructors will appreciate the chapter organization, crisp writing, pedagogical features, and overall brevity that they have come to expect from this bestseller.For more information on U.S. Foreign Policy, click here. U.S. Foreign Policy Today: American Renewal?This new contributed volume from Steven Hook and James Scott introduces students to the conduct of foreign policy under the Obama administration. Its twelve original essays, written by a stellar cast of experts in the field, address whether the Obama administration&BAD:rsquo;s strategy represents a &BAD:ldquo;renewal&BAD:rdquo; of U.S. engagement. To what extent has this administration succeeded in building both the domestic and international constituencies needed to implement its foreign policy goals? How exactly have Obama&BAD:rsquo;s policies regarding drone strikes, prisoner abuse, extraordinary rendition, and climate change differed from Bush-era policies? Contributors provide detailed assessments of these and many other key questions.Designed to fit easily into courses on U.S. foreign policy, the volume&BAD:rsquo;s first part looks at policy formulation, while the second part tackles policy domains. An extensive bibliography makes a great student resource for further research.For more information on U.S. Foreign Policy Today, click here.
