Whither Foreign Policy?

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the possible replacement for containment. Even as enlargement crumbled, other developments in Bill Clinton's on-the-job education in foreign policy cast doubt on the administration's earlier insistence on crafting a fully cohesive strategy. A new discussion regarding the imperatives of a post-Cold War grand strategy occurred, and many wondered if coherence had become irrelevant.

Keywords: replacement; containment; enlargement; Bill Clinton; foreign policy; strategy; post-Cold War; coherence
