About this book

President Donald J. Trump’s “America First” outlook has inspired both enthusiasm and condemnation among different segments of the American population. This book examines the meaning and implications of that perspective, and how the Trump Administration has implemented it—or failed to do so. Contributors, subject-matter experts with diverse points of view, place the Trump Doctrine within the succession of presidential foreign policy themes, and provide a case-by-case analysis of how it has been applied in specific regions and countries around the world. The book’s aim is to provide a fair and balanced assessment, relatively rare in this period of intense partisanship and impending national election.

Reviews

“President Trump’s foreign policy will be debated for years to come, but a great place to start is with The Trump Doctrine and the Emerging International System, which brings multiple methods and careful analysis…these essays are both comprehensive and penetrating.”

Robert Jervis, Adlai Stevenson Professor of International Affairs, Columbia University, USA

 

“This is far and away the best book on Donald Trump’s foreign policy. Its thoughtful essays by distinguished contributors explore the president and his policies from historical, psychological, and comparative perspectives.”

Richard Ned Lebow, Professor of International Political Theory at the King’s College London, UK

 

“Putting the psychological and policy dispositions as well as the decision-making processes and policy outcomes into historical and comparative perspective, the volume makes an important contribution.”

Richard K. Herrmann, Professor Emeritus, The Ohio State University, USA

 

“This book is simply indispensable to students and practitioners of American foreign policy.”

Yaacov Vertzberger, Professor, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem

 

“Renshon and Suedfeld have brought together an excellent group of scholars from a variety of theoretical and political perspectives to analyze President Trump’s world views, goals, and strategies in the context of a changing international system.”

Jack Levy, Board of Governors’ Professor, Rutgers University, USA

 

“It is tempting to believe that Donald Trump's foreign policy goals are as ephemeral as his tweets. The studies in this book bring a different view, that Trump has shown persistence and flexibility in pursuing his vision of ‘America First.’”

Clark R. McCauley, Research Professor of Psychology, Bryn Mawr College, USA
