Foreign Policy in Comparative Perspective : Domestic and International Influences on State Behavior Paperback / softback

Edited by Ryan K. Beasley, Juliet Kaarbo, Jeffrey S. Lantis, Michael T. Snarr

Paperback / softback


Widely regarded as the most comprehensive comparative foreign policy text, Foreign Policy in Comparative Perspective has been completely updated in this much-anticipated second edition.

The editors have brought together fifteen top scholars to highlight the importance of both internal and external forces in foreign policymaking.

Exploring the foreign policies of thirteen nations-both major and emerging players, and representing all regions of the world-chapter authors link the study of international relations to domestic politics, while treating each nation according to individual histories and contemporary dilemmas.

The book's accessible theoretical framework is designed to enable comparative analysis, helping students discern patterns to understand why a state acts as it does in foreign affairs.

Each of the thirteen country chapters includes: an introduction by the editors to highlight similar developments in other countries; a discussion of the linkages between internal and external factors and implications for the future; coverage of key foreign policy issues; a map to provide geographical context; and a list of suggested readings.
