US Foreign Policy towards China, Cuba and Iran: The Politics of Recognition 1st Edition

In their thinking about foreign policy and the US role in the world, Americans have not typically given much attention to diplomatic recognition and relations. Circumstances, both historic and geographic, have influenced Americans to either ignore the rest of the world or attempt to force it into the American mold. This phenomenon characterizes the view not just of most American citizens, but of American political decision makers and academic analysts of international relations as well. The objective of this study is to provide an explanation of why enduring policies of severed diplomatic relations and refusal to grant diplomatic recognition deserve greater attention because they have been, and continue to be, costly for the United States and the broader international community.
