This book will be an important addition to the library, and there are several reasons for that. The book has a great introductory part which lays out the basics of foreign policy analysis (definitions, main influences on foreign policy, the complex relationship between foreign policy analysis theories and theories of international relations). Second, this book manages to look at the basics of external and internal influences of 13 countries in a structured way. However, it would have been nice to retain the chapter on Israel as well (a chapter on Israel is included in the first edition of the book, but it has disappeared from the second edition). Third, with this book I can tell my students who would like to do research on foreign policy of one of the 13 countries that now there is a source which serves as a point of departure (defining main themes, key actors, and key sources) for further research. However, for the purpose of both courses that I will be teaching during the Spring semester 2012 on foreign policy issues, this book is best viewed as a supplementary material. I have informed our librarian that I would like to see 2 or 3 copies of this book in the library.
