In The Press

'As the Cold War recedes ever further into the past, it may seem to be carrying with it all hopes of staying abreast of US foreign relations history scholarship, which has been rushing forward in uncharted directions. This much anticipated update to America in the World does far more than steer us through the surging waters of the post-9/11 era; it provides sharp new perspectives on enduring concerns. An indispensable guide for newcomers, a valuable reference work for experts, and a model of historiographical reflection by any standard, this collection provides an unparalleled map to the great debates and interpretive turns that have shaped this vital field.'
