Public Opinion in American Foreign Policy examines the role that public attitudes have played over the last generation in the making of United States foreign policy. It focuses on four of the most prominent foreign interventions of the last generation: the Vietnam War, the Nicaraguan contra funding controversy, the Persian Gulf War, and the Bosnia crisis. Through its examination of these events, the book argues and demonstrates that public opinion constrained but did not set American foreign intervention policy during the second half of the twentieth century. The book is perfect for use in political science or history courses on US foreign policy, and should also be attractive to the general reader interested in some of the most important conflicts of our time.

Review:

represents a major step forward for research on public opinion in American foreign policy because of its methodological rigor and good judgement. ... provides considerable insight into an understanding of how past policymakers formulated - and in some cases, regretted - their response. (Millennium: Journal of International Studies, vol. 30, no. 2)

important and well-researched ... thorough and fair assessment of the awareness and sensitivity of each administration to public opinion. Sobel is remarkably successful at wading through the rhetoric in the decision maker's public statements and determining when they were actually responsive to public opinion and when they employed it just to back up their pre-existing policy preferences. (Millennium: Journal of International Studies, vol. 30, no. 2)
