Foreign Policy 101: Who Makes Foreign Policy?

By January 19, 2013

Follow me on:

With the start of the new year, I'm starting something new here at About.com, U.S. Foreign Policy. I'm calling it Foreign Policy 101, and you can access it by going to the user-path tabs at the top of my home page. This will entail some writing, re-writing, and reorganization, and it will take some time, so check back frequently.

When I'm done, I hope to have something like an online textbook on American foreign policy. As a college professor, I love online texts -- they are easy to access, easy to read and they cost students nothing.

My first installment is Who Makes Foreign Policy? Check it out, and let me know what you think. Also, let me know what topics you want to see in this "textbook."
