Summary
This volume presents current controversial issues surrounding current American foreign policy in a debate-style format designed to stimulate student interest and develop critical thinking skills. It introduces readers to controversies in the policy for which the United States interacts with foreign nations and sets standards of interaction for its organizations, corporations and individual citizens, re-examining the assumptions behind their views. This topic is framed with a general summary and introduction, and a postscript or challenge questions. This work features an annotated listing of selected World Wide Web sites and an online instructor's resource guide with testing material available
