Summary

This brief contributed volume introduces students to the conduct of foreign policy under the Obama administration. The book's twelve original essays share a common theme: to investigate the degree to which Obama's strategy represents a "renewal" of U.S. engagement. Chapters in the first part of the book look at actors and policy formulation and focus on the role of the executive, Congress, public opinion, and interest groups. The second part tackles the policy domains: national defense, terrorism, intelligence, diplomacy, human rights, the economy, and the environment.
