The Changing Politics of Foreign Policy Reviews


'This is a very creative, broad-ranging evaluation of the changing status and current state of foreign policy analysis. Provocative and insightful, it fills a major gap in the literature and should command a wide audience and much critical attention.' - Charles W. Kegley, Jr., Pearce Professor of International Relations, University of South Carolina and President, International Studies Association, 1993-1994 '[C]omprehensive and incisive...exceptionally readable, detailed and articulate...a must-read for any student of International Relations who wants to understand the main forces and processes behind contemporary foreign policy.' - Yossi Mekelberg, International Affairs '[J]udicious and acute. Hill is the voice of reason...He is a penetrating reader, rescuing several earlier works from undeserved obscurity...The Changing Politics of Foreign Policy is a deeply pondered and heartfelt work. As a primer, for the fogged student or the fuddled functionary of state, it is unsurpassed.' - Alex Danchev, Times Higher Education Supplement '[A] rigorous and comprehensive assessment of [Foreign Policy Analysis]... that would be worth assigning both in general seminars and those devoted more directly towards comparative foreign policy... Should be required reading for those already in the field of FPA and may help to generate interest from new scholars.' - Patrick James, Perspectives on Politics '[A] vigorous rebuttal of those IR scholars who dismiss foreign policy as of little concern...will be the definitive account of the subject for many years to come.' - Professor Saki Dockrill, Journal of Transatlantic Studies
