Summary: Foreign policy scholars argue that the key to understanding the world's future lies in understanding how the great powers shaped the 20th century. They analyze the foreign policies of seven major powers -- England, France, Germany, Russia, the US, Japan, and China -- and identify pivotal forces that have shaped each country's policies over the last 100 years. They conclude that the goals of the powers have changed from building empires to responding to citizens and consumers. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0465054757
