- DescriptionAmerican Foreign Relations: A New Diplomatic History is a compelling narrative history of American foreign policy from the early settlement of North America to the present. In addition to ecomic and strategic motives, Walter L. Hixson integrates key cultural factors-including race, gender, and religion-into the story of American foreign policy.

Clearly written and comprehensive, the book features: * Extensive illustrations, with over 100 images and maps * Primary documents in each chapter, showcasing the perspectives of historical actors * Interpreting the Past features that explore how historians' understanding of events has changed over time * Selected bibliographies of key resources for further research in each chapter In one concise volume, American Foreign Relations covers the full sweep of American foreign policy from the colonial period to the present day. It is an essential introduction for anyone seeking to understand the history of America's role in the world.
