The Routledge Handbook of American Military and Diplomatic History is clear, up-to-date, wideranging and interesting. The melding of military and diplomatic history works very well and the book deserves widespread attention. - Jeremy Black, author of Introduction to Global Military History This excellent, well-edited volume combines clearly told narratives of U.S. foreign and military policies, from the post-Civil-War era to the 21st-century invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, with informed discussions of the evolving scholarship through which informed Americans viewed the 150 years when they moved from conquering a continent to trying to reshape large parts of the world. It deserves a wide audience ranging from students and general readers, just beginning serious study of these policies, to advanced graduate students and faculty who debate, sometimes heatedly, the changing contexts and interpretations of those historic policies. - Walter LaFeber, author of The American Age: U.S. Foreign Policy at Home and Abroad "The editors are to be congratulated on what they have accomplished, in terms of compiling a coherent, interesting and well-written volume, not the easiest of tasks when coordinating forty contributors." -Priscilla Roberts, University of Hong Kong in Diplomacy & Statecraft
