  • The Mood/Interest Theory of American Foreign Policyby Jack E. Holmes; Frank L. Klingberg

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In 1952, Frank L. Klingberg's article on introvert and extrovert American foreign policy moods projected an American turn toward introversion in the late 1960s. After this came to pass, Jack Holmes began to develop a theory of how these moods might work in a more specific sense. His mood/interest theory points to a basic conflict between politico-military... more...

  • Mission to Yenanby Carolle J. Carter

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    Conventional wisdom informs us that "only Nixon could go to China." In fact, in 1944, nearly thirty years before his historic trip, the American military established the first liaison and intelligence-gathering mission with the Chinese Communists in Yenan. Commonly referred to as the Dixie Mission, the detached military unit sent to Yenan was responsible... more...

  • The United States and Japan in the Postwar Worldby Akira Iriye; Warren I. Cohen

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 25.00

    A major phenomenon in the post-World War II world is the rise of Japan as a leading international economic and industrial power. This advance began with American aid in rebuilding the nation after the war, but it has now seen Japan rival and even outstrip the United States on several fronts. The relations between the two powers and the impact that... more...

  • Cold War in the Balkansby Michael M. Boll

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    As World War II drew to a close, the United States and the Soviet Union began to maneuver for position in postwar Europe, in the first exploratory moves of what would soon become a worldwide contest for power and prestige.

  • The Russian Bureauby Linda Killen

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The American position on Russia during the First World War was defined by the same idealism that guided our relations with other countries. Woodrow Wilson and American leaders had hailed the Revolution of March 1917 as an expression of the true spirit of Russia, a harbinger of democracy. The Bolshevik revolt and the civil war that followed were, in... more...

  • Intervention in the Caribbeanby Jr. General Bruce Palmer

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    The 1965 U.S. intervention in the Dominican Republic remains a unique event: the only time the Organization of American States has intervened with force on a member state's territory. It is also a classic example of a U.S. military operation that drew in America's hemispheric allies. Finally, its outcome was that rare feat in the annals of diplomacy... more...
