Encyclopedia of American Foreign Policy
Encyclopedia of American Foreign Policy
Edited by Alexander DeConde
Scribner's, 1978, pp.

An intelligently edited and handsomely produced collection of 95 original essays on broad themes - e.g., colonialism, the domino theory, ethnicity and foreign policy, pacifism, revisionism, the Monroe Doctrine, the Nixon Doctrine, etc. Not a facts-and-figures reference work but a contribution to the history of ideas. Most of the authors are American diplomatic historians.
