"Indispensable reading for scholars in the field as well as for graduate students preparing for general exams. Covering the entire field of U.S. foreign relations from the colonial era to the present, the essays highlight the rich variety of new approaches that have energized international history over the past three decades." Journal of Cold War Studies “[This] work is truly a companion for professors who need quick and easily digestible information ... and for researchers and students wishing to read more widely.” History “Indispensible for anyone wishing to understand the background to recent debates over US foreign relations, with essays by leading scholars in a historical field that is among the most innovative — and perhaps, given the current condition of world affairs, the most relevant.” Walter LaFeber, Cornell University “ This is an extremely valuable guide to the recent scholarly literature on the history of US foreign relations. The contributors, all respected scholars in their fields, show how history and historiography are often inextricably bound together.” Akira Iriye, Harvard University "This companion should prove an invaluable reference source for scholars and students in the field."
