This book’s conceptual introduction to foreign policy analysis focuses on decision makers and decision making. Each chapter is organized around puzzles and questions to which undergraduate students can easily relate. As a whole, the book emphasizes the importance of individuals in foreign policy decision making, while also placing decision makers within the context that shapes their perceptions and actions.

"Well-known scholar and journal editor Marijke Breuning provides a welcome new text to the field of foreign policy analysis. Aiming the book at those with no prior study of international relations, she uses both U.S. and other country examples to introduce students to the comparative study of foreign policy decision making.By posing interesting questions and puzzles, she conveys both concepts and theories in an accessible way.Our field s curricular literature has just been enriched, and those wanting to teach an undergraduate foreign policy analysis course owe it to themselves and their students to check out this volume."

- Ralph G. Carter, Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science, Texas Christian University
