Pub. Date:
Incorporating the most recent scholarship, this eighth revised edition of Rise to Globalism offers a concise and informative overview of the evolution of American foreign policy from 1938 to the present, focusing on such pivotal events as World War II, the Cuban missile crisis, Vietnam, and the SALT treaties. Ambrose and Brinkley also closely examine such recent topics as the Iran-Contra scandal, free elections in Nicaragua, the rise of international terrorism, the fall of Communism, the Gulf War, and the crisis in the former Yugoslavia. In light of the enormous global power of the United States, the authors analyze how American character traits-economic aggressiveness, racism, fear of Communism-have shaped the country's evolving foreign policy. This probing and thematic examination of events makes Rise to Globalism an invaluable work.
