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.
