Summary: LaFeber, a diplomatic historian and author of the acclaimed Inevitable Revolutions ( LJ 12/1/83), offers a well-written, comprehensive overview of U.S. foreign policy in the context of American social history. Like any work intended as a text and covering such a broad period, this is short on detail but does consistently develop themes useful in understanding the complex history of American foreign relations. In particular, LaFeber emphasizes the role of American eag
