Howard J. Wiarda, the Dean Rusk Professor of International Relations in the School of Public and International Affairs, has written American Foreign Policy in Regions of Conflict: A Global Perspective as part of the American Foreign Policy in the 21st Century series.
Wiarda examines how America’s regional foreign policy priorities are shifting toward Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa and away from Europe and Russia. He looks at these changes and the reasons for them in each of these regional areas in this comprehensive work on global perspective on American foreign policy.
A text for introductory international relations, foreign policy, comparative politics and world politics courses, this book succeeds in integrating these often separate subfields and shows how the study of comparative politics can enlighten foreign policy.
Wiarda also is the senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Dividing his time between the academic, Washington policy and think tank worlds, he is the author of more than 30 books on foreign policy, comparative politics and international affairs.
