While the process of 'globalization' is arguably a centuries-old phenomenon, during the 1990s it accelerated dramatically. A major impetus for this acceleration came from the administration of United States President William Jefferson ('Bill') Clinton. During these years, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was signed, the World Trade Organization (WTO) came into being, and the United States concluded over 200 other bilateral and multilateral trade accords. Yet such geo-economic integration occurred alongside violent bloodshed in many parts of the worldnotably Rwanda, the former Yugoslavia, and the Middle East. Since the start of a new century political shifts in the United States, accentuated by the suddenly more tangible threat of international terrorism on U.S. soil, have all but reversed the Clinton administration's doctrine of engagement. This remarkable book presents a vision of the United States as an active partner in the process of globalization. It consists entirely of excerpts from speeches on U.S. foreign policy delivered by President Clinton between 1991 and the end of 2000. It begins with a selection of major foreign policy addresses, and proceeds under eight topic areas: the transformation of Europe in the post-Cold War decade; the Palestine-Israeli peace process; the stalemate in the conflict with Iraq; the evolution of a policy of engagement with China; arms control progress and setbacks; the international response to the Rwanda genocide; trade liberalization and globalization; and, terrorism against United States targets. The editors provide a historical introduction and a chronology of significant events affecting United States foreign policy between March 1993 and July 2000. Offering as it does many insights into the priorities and evolution of Clinton administration policies on major foreign policy issues, Clinton's Foreign Policy is of inestimable value to officials, policy-makers and academics seeking to understand a world in which the same ambitions and struggles proceed, albeit with a different and perhaps less conciliatory face.It is important for all our fellow Americans to recognize that federal tax dollars have funded much of this research, and that this and ... listen to thisa€”microchips that would actually directly stimulate damaged spinal cords in a way that could allow people now paralyzed to stand up and walk. ...
