Since it first appeared in 1971, Rise to Globalism has sold hundreds of thousands of copies. The ninth edition of this classic survey, now updated through the administration of George W. Bush, offers a concise and informative overview of the evolution of American foreign policy from 1938 to the present, focusing on such pivotal events as World War II, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, and 9/11. Examining everything from the Iran-Contra scandal to the rise of international terrorism, the authors analyze-in light of the enormous global power of the United States-how American economic aggressiveness, racism, and fear of Communism have shaped the nation's evolving foreign policy.

African-Americans' analysis of, and interest in, foreign affairs represents a rich and dynamic legacy, and this work provides a cutting edge insight into this neglected aspect of US foreign affairs. In addition to extending the parameters of US foreign policy literature to include race and ethnicity, the book documents case-specific analyses of the evolutionary development of the African American foreign affairs network (AAFAN). Whilst the examination of race in regard to the construction of US foreign policy is significant, this book also provides a cross disciplinary approach which utilises historical and political science methods to paint a more realistic appraisal of US foreign policy. Including analysis of original archival evidence, this theoretically informed work seeks to transcend the standard mono-disciplinary approach which overestimates the separation between domestic and foreign affairs. The unique approach of this work will add an important dimension to a newly emerging field and will be of interest to scholars in ethnic and racial studies, American politics, US foreign policy and US history.

Von den überseeischen Siedlergesellschaften der Europäer gelang es zuerst einem Teil der britischen Kolonien in Nordamerika, sich gewaltsam die staatliche Unabhängigkeit zu erkämpfen. Der faszinierende Aufstieg von einer Kleinstkolonie 1607 am Rande des von den Eingeborenen beherrschten "Virginia" zur um 1900 größten Industriemacht wird in acht Phasen skizziert. In jedem der Zeitabschnitte steht zwar die nationale Politikgeschichte im Vordergrund, sie wird jedoch zu den gleichzeitigen sozialen, wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Entwicklungen in Beziehung gesetzt.

Als fünftgrößter Staat der Erde zählt Brasilien zu den Top Ten der weltweit größten Volkswirtschaften. Die inländische Wirtschaft weist hohe Wachstumsraten auf, und aussichtsreiche Zahlen bei Außenhandel, Investitionen und Beschäftigungszuwachs erhöhen das wirtschaftspolitische Interesse an Brasilien. Auch Deutschland befindet sich in einer vielseitigen Handelsbeziehung mit dem südamerikanischen Land. Basis dieser Verbindung ist die Nachkriegszeit der 1950er Jahre, in denen Brasilien die eigene Verhandlungsposition gegenüber den USA stärken wollte. Zu diesem Zweck forcierte Brasilien den Handel mit der aufstrebenden Industriemacht aus Europa und nutzte zunehmend Kapital und technologisches Know-how aus Deutschland. Entstanden ist eine fruchtbare ökonomische und politische Beziehung, die dieses Buch historisch und analytisch bis zur zeitnahen Gegenwart aufarbeitet. Der Autor Prof. Dr. Luiz Alberto Moniz-Bandeira gibt einen einmaligen und umfassenden Einblick in die gemeinsame Geschichte der beiden Länder.

American foreign policy often looks like a trail of man-made debris and disaster. Of course, the explanations for many poorly-made decisions are rather complex. In this brief and cogent analysis, Houghton shows us that understanding American foreign policy often comes down to recognizing the cognitive limitations of the decision-makers, which affects the foreign policy process. Then there is the nature of the decisions themselves. Quite a few decisions in American foreign policy involve ‘tragic’ choices, where leaders are effectively confronted with a series of progressively bad or uncomfortable options. And it is equally clear that some policies are not the product of any one individual’s preferences, but emerge as a consequence of the way in which complex modern governments with large bureaucracies operate. Written with the interested layperson in mind, as well as students of international affairs, this Citizen’s Guide to American Foreign Policy asks questions like, "Why do presidents so often do things which seem to be directly against the national interests of the United States – not just in retrospect, but even at the time?" "Why do there seem to be so many fiascoes in US foreign policy?" "Why does Congress sometimes tie the hands of the president in foreign affairs?" "Why do presidents seem to respond more to opinion polls or to what’s on CNN and Fox News than they do to the core interests of the United States?" Houghton’s overview helps us see past the partisan in-fighting that too often obscures the central issues in foreign affairs. This is vital, required reading for all readers who wish to better understand America’s involvement in the world.
