Show Summary Details


This introductory chapter discusses the period between 1989 and 2006. It explores the ways in which the disappearance of the Cold War model of U.S. diplomacy affected the development of policy during those years. It shows that due to the failures in foreign policy, Bill Clinton was led to rethink the prevailing intellectual precepts of foreign policy. It also states the two main purposes of the book, which are to present an account of U.S. foreign policy and offer an interpretation of U.S. diplomacy.

Keywords: Cold War model; U.S. diplomacy; development; foreign policy; Bill Clinton; intellectual precepts
