Bruce W. Jentleson (Editor, Duke University)


This volume, compiled by Professor Jentleson and following the chapter structure of the main text of American Foreign Policy, features case studies adapted from the Kennedy School of Government series and readings from authors like Hans Morgenthau, George Kennan, Henry Kissinger, Walter LaFeber, Francis Fukuyama, Ole R. Holsti, Jack Snyder and other major scholars and experienced policy-makers.

The readings delve deeper into theoretical, historical and policy debates discussed in American Foreign Policy: Dynamics of Choice, and icons in the textbook margins link the broader points to related articles and case studies in Perspectives.
