This book examines governance in the context of presidential power and foreign policy. In Part I, contributors offer contrasting perspectives of the role of the president. Part II provides an analysis of governance and foreign policy, while Part III uses several case studies to illustrate the connection between governance and foreign policy. The book concludes with Ambassador David Newsom's essay concerning the critical changes that occurred after World War II: decolonization, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and the advent of the Cold War. He also discusses the important treaties, negotiations, and agreements that have shaped diplomacy in the last 50 years. His work reviews the impact of these events and agreements on foreign policy, describes current foreign policy problems, and details future policy imperatives. Co-published with The Miller Center.
