Good general overview of American Foreign Policy, particularly in terms of significant events and turning points. That said: read critically! There are interjections of political preference and implied right/wrong pronouncements - not entirely unjustified, just something the reader should be aware of.

More troubling however is the at-times sloppy research and writing. I would have given this 4 stars or better, had the research & commentary been better. So many mis-spellings: really? And as a military veteran, so many errors on basic ranks, structure, military protocol etc. show carelessness - particularly egregious since the U.S.'s foreign policy heavily involves military affairs.

All in all a recommended read, but read carefully & critically.

I first read Rise to Globalism in college, then again in grad school. It is worth revisiting every few years.

The narrative is sweeping and reflects the conclusions and judgements of the author without appology. This is not a scholarly text in a rigorous, academic sense. It is well researched and the author is an authority, but the goal of the text is to tell the story of America's Rise to Globalism. The gentle narrative voice draws the rader into the experience, as interpreted by the author, in a way that uniquely conveys the ethos of the times.

It's not Toynbee and it shouldn't be. It is worth reading and revisiting for what it is. Every American should be familiar with our country's Rise to Globalism.

Comprising a book on American foreign policy on the period between the conclusion of WWII, the end of the Cold War and Clintons and Bush's presidency is difficult to do within such a small book. One could publish numerous volumes to record this era in history. In this case this book was extremely succesfull drawing on the most relevant information available. It focuses largely (infact exclusively almost) on American foreign policy. One may see it at often times critical to the US, but it is not critical in the sense as it potrays America as the "bad guy" in the Cold War, but rather it is critical from an American or an insider perspective. A reformist perspective if you will. It gives the US, Credit where it is due and also criticism where it is due. Given that alot of the foreign policy conducted by American administrations has put American is a worse off position and has largely been a failure (i.e. Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Carter and Reagan)the book dishes out a fair bit of critical overview. However, it paints the presidency of Eisenhower, George H. Bush and even Clinton (at times, but largely being critical of Clinton) in a positive light. Which is more than fair. The book is worth the read, especially if one wishes to read this as an introduction to US foreign policy.

The first two-thirds of this book, which is through approximately Carter's presidency, the book reads quite well. Starting with Reagan, it appears as though a toddler took over. There are incredibly. Annoying typographical errors in just about, every page or two. In addition the analysis, Decreases and the book begins to a read like a 1st copy draft of a 2-nd graders' history test.

A must read if you plan on taking the FSOT. But not the most thorough account.

As expected. Compact, condensed, fact filled, and insightful "rush" through American Foreign Policy; including connecting WWII and other policy decisions to many world complexities of today. Fantastic book but can be a little daunting with so many facts compactly presented. Helpful if reader has some background on history of this era beforehand.

Since the work first appeared in the '60s, it remains a clear and concise view of the underpinnings of American foreign policy and the unfortunate turns taken in misperceptions of realities. How the Cold War started, involvement in Viet Nam after the French colonial debacle in the '50s, and various machinations in the internal affairs of Middle-eastern, Asian, and South American countries which led the United States to be perceived as a patronizing colonial power serving its own parochial interests.

This is an excellent overview of the 20th Century foreign and military policy and practices by U.S. presidents and leaders. The authors aren't afraid of bestowing praise where they deemed it deserved and criticism where not. There is some political bias, but one has to see past it and make up one's own mind. I do think it is good on the facts.
