Condition Very Good
Spanning more than three centuries of history, from Cardinal Richelieu, the father of the modern state system, to the "New World Order" in which we live. Shows how the Americans, protected by the size and isolation of their country, as well as by their own idealism and mistrust of the Old World, have sought to conduct a unique kind of foreign policy based on the way they wanted the world to be, as opposed to the way in which it really is. 912pp with b/w plates. Thought provoking! Crease to front end paper otherwise near fine.
