In the second edition of Foreign Policy the ever-changing field of foreign policy is explored first by examining the theoretical and historical perspectives, then the variety of actors, context and goals, and concludes with an interesting range of relevant case studies. In this way, the editors take a balanced approach, presenting the theoretical and practical sides of foreign policy. The expert contributors to the text are a mixture of academics and practitioners which supports this balance. Relevant foreign policy issues such as climate change and EU-Russia energy dynamics are explored in the case study section, showing the growing importance of foreign policy in the real world.
