BIPARTISANSHIP and the Making of Foreign Policy: A Historical Survey

By Ellen C. Collier


The United States is in the process of developing a new foreign policy to meet the changing political, economic, and technological situations throughout the world. This book is a history of the making of a new foreign policy after World War II and analyzes how a bipartisan policy was achieved and lasted until the end of the Cold War in 1991. By reprinting her out-of-print book published by Westview Press in 1991, author Ellen Collier makes available a handbook on building a bipartisan foreign policy.

As you’re familiar, during these extraordinary times, we’ve taken on significant volume and have had to extend our turnaround times on U.S. orders over the last two weeks. As we manage that previous volume and continually receive new orders, we must extend our turnaround times further. As a result, we’re required to further extend the turnaround times for U.S. print orders. We expect to be back to traditional operating turnaround times in a few weeks and appreciate your business and support during this challenging time.
