New Studies in U.S. Foreign Relations

Inactive.
The Press is no longer accepting proposals for this series.
This series focuses on works that expand the parameters of U.S. foreign relations. Chronologically broad and topically diverse, it is designed to further the internationalization—indeed, globalization—of the field by publishing a wide variety of innovative books, including interdisciplinary studies, that place the United States within a larger, transnational context.
