About the book:

Incorporating the most recent scholarship, this 7th edition offers an 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 the SALT treaties. Professor Stephen Ambrose also examines such recent topics as the Iran-Contra scandal, free elections in Nicaragua, the rise of international terrorism, the fall of communism, the Gulf War, and the crisis in Yugoslavia. In the light of the enormous global power of the United States, Ambrose analyzes how American character traits - economic aggressiveness, racism, fear of communism - have shaped the country's evolving foreign policy.
