|Textbook & Reference|
G. John Ikenberry, ed., American Foreign Policy: Theoretical Essays, 6th Edn. (Boston, Massachusetts: Wadsworth/Cengage Learn, 2011). (hereafter, AFP)
Because the university library only carries Ikenberry’s 5th edition, so the page numbers listed in the “Schedule & Topics of Meetings” will be based upon the 5th edition instead of the 6th. Those who have little knowledge of U.S. foreign policy outside the Asia Pacific, the following books may be of help: James McCormick, ed., The Domestic Sources of American Foreign Policy: Insights and Evidence, 6th Edn. (Lanham, Maryland: Rowman & Littlefield, 2012); and Steven W. Hook and John W. Spanier, American Foreign Policy since World War II (Washington, DC: CQ Press, various editions).
