US Foreign Policy After The Cold War

Insightful and comprehensive. . . . Must reading for those who wonder why this nation is so confused and unsure of itself as it seeks to define its proper role in the world.
Lawrence J. Korb

The cold war came to a grinding halt during the astounding developments of 1989-1991. The Berlin Wall fell, Eastern European countries freed themselves from Soviet domination, and the Soviet Union itself disintegrated after witnessing a failed coup presumably aimed at restoring a communist dictatorship. Suddenly the “evil empire” was no more, and U.S. foreign policy was forever changed. This volume explores the revisions to a variety of bureaucratic institutions and policy areas in the wake of these political upheavals.
