Combat drones are transforming attitudes about the use of military force. Military casualties and the costs of conflict sap public support for war and for political and military leaders. Combat drones offer an unprecedented ability to reduce these costs by increasing accuracy, reducing the risks to civilians, and protecting military personnel from harm. These advantages should make drone strikes more popular than operations involving ground troops. Yet many critics believe drone warfare will make political leaders too willing to authorize wars, weakening constraints on the use of force. Because combat drones are relatively new, these arguments have been based on anecdotes, a handful of public opinion polls, or theoretical speculation. Drones and Support for the Use of Force uses experimental research to analyze the effects of combat drones on Americans’ support for the use of force. The authors’ findings—that drones have had important but nuanced effects on support for the use of force—have implications for democratic control of military action and civil-military relations and provide insight into how the proliferation of military technologies influences foreign policy.

A Concise Introduction to American Foreign Policy provides a comprehensive picture of America's behavior in world affairs. It is designed to assist the reader to appreciate the complexity of both the domestic and external settings of American foreign policy. It emphasizes how American foreign and defense policy-making is accomplished. Uniquely, it provides a succinct survey of both the development and the characteristic patterns of American foreign policy. In doing so, it stresses the central themes of U.S. foreign policy and global experience, especially since the end of World War II. It concludes that rather than the emergence of a grand strategy to replace the cold war's policy of containment, a number of contending foreign policy approaches can be identified. It indicates how post-cold war managers of American foreign policy have pragmatically incorporated elements of the contending approaches into their policy.

Ole Holsti, one of the deans of US foreign policy analysis, examines the complex factors involved in the policy decision-making process including the beliefs and cognitive processes of foreign policy leaders and the influence public opinion has on foreign policy. The essays, in addition to being both theoretically and empirically rich, are historical in breadth--with essays on Vietnam--as well as contemporary in relevance--with essays on public opinion and foreign policy after 9/11.
