"Viotti's book is very intelligently constructed and can be read with profit by any student of US foreign policy."
"Paul Viotti, who has served as both a career military officer and professor, has written an excellent introduction to American foreign policy that is both theoretically and historically grounded. It will be of great value to students and professors alike."
Dan Caldwell, Pepperdine University
"Professor Viotti has done a masterful job of analyzing the factors that go into the making and implementing of American foreign policy. After reviewing the kinds of foreign policy options available to policy makers, he shows how these options have been applied by various US administrations in the last 200 years. He also identifies particular themes that have helped determine American foreign policy and concludes with reflections on the role of presidential power. Overall, a brilliant summary of what happened and why in American foreign policy since the earliest days of the republic."
Ambassador George M. Lane, U.S. Foreign Service (retired)
"With its focus on the policymaker, Paul Viotti's new book is both engaging and distinctive; this approach gives students a sense of the range of policy options to consider in particular cases and it allows those familiar with IR theory to make connections between those theories and policymaking."
Daniel G Lang, Lynchburg College
