Jimmy Carter: Foreign Policy and Post-Presidential Years

Synopsis

President Jimmy Carter, like all his predecessors since World War II, experienced the blurring of lines between foreign and domestic policy, while, paradoxically, the contrasts between those lines became more pronounced. This volume examines the high points of the Carter foreign policy approach--human rights, working with the developing world, and the efforts for peace in the Middle East--as well as the low points such as his failure to free the hostages in Iran. In addition, the volume examines President Carter's career since leaving office.
