From the Publisher:

-Emphasis is on the nexus at which foreign policy decision making in Washington and military decision making in Korea interact.
-Places the conflict in a broad domestic and international setting and discusses the various political pressures on the White House.
-Stresses three themes- crisis, credibility, and command in relation to sending troops to Korea.

-Increased coverage of the geopolitical and geostrategic context of the war.
-Increased coverage of Soviet and Chinese policy with respect to the war.
-Further discussion of the use of nuclear weapons during the war.
