Pressestimmen

"Drawing upon recent scholarship and using new as well as traditional approaches, four distinguished historians provide...excellent summaries of the international history of the United States from its emergence as a nation to its global involvement as a great power. Each author gives a distinctive interpretation to the period covered, yet together the four volumes furnish a cohesive overview of the history of U.S. foreign relations." The Historian "Happily, the new, four-volume Cambridge History of American Foreign Relations provides an opportunity to scan the past two centuries for indications of the shape of foreign policy in the post-Cold War world. Each of the four books stands on its own. Each offers a clear overview of a particular period written by a distinguished historian drawing on a considerable body of research, itself the product of decades of scholarly endeavor. None is simply a chronicle of events." World Policy Journal "Happily, the new, four-volume Cambridge History of American Foreign Relations provides an opportunity to scan the past two centuries for indications of the shape of foreign policy in the post-Cold War world. Each of the four books stands on its own. Each offers a clear overview of a particular period written by a distinguished historian drawing on a considerable body of research, itself the product of decades of scholarly endeavor. None is simply a chronicle of events." World Policy Journal "These books can be read together, or, thanks to fairly broad and overlapping introductory chapters, they can be read as discrete volumes. They will certainly make an impact on the profession." Canadian Journal of History "These books can be read together, or, thanks to fairly broad and overlapping introductory chapters, they can be read as discrete volumes. They will certainly make an impact on the profession." Canadian Journal of History "...lucid, balanced and readable...the best available survey of American foreign policy during the postwar period. America in the Age of Soviet Power provides an excellent starting point for exploring the story of postwar foreign policy." Jonathan Rosenberg, Boston Book Review
