   schema:description "This book presents a comprehensive history of American international relations from the American Revolution to 1913. It demonstrates the complexities of the decision-making process that led to the rise and decline of the United States (relative to the ascent of other nations) in world power status. Howard Jones focuses on the personalities, security interests, and expansionist tendencies behind the formulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy and highlights the intimate relationship between foreign and domestic policy. This volume relies on the natural chronology of historical events to organize and narrate the story as the nation's leaders saw it. Jones uncovers the tangled and often confusing nature of foreign affairs by taking the narrative approach and does not create the illusion that American foreign relations took place in a well-ordered fashion. This book will help readers understand the plight of present-day policymakers who encounter an array of problems that are rarely susceptible to simple analysis and ready solution. The text is presented in a two-color format and includes maps and photographs. Each chapter ends with a list of suggested readings, giving readers additional resources for exploration and research."@en ;
