Ethnic Groups and U.S. Foreign Policy

Greenwood Publishing Group, 1987 - 178 pages


This volume examines the dynamics of ethnic groups' attempts to influence U.S. foreign policy toward their native countries. A collection of essays by noted political scientists, the book compares and contrasts the political activities of seven ethnic groups with varying degrees of participation, influence, and success: Arab-Americans, Jewish-Americans, African-Americans, Polish-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, and Irish-Americans. Taken together, the chapters included here make an important contribution both to the study of foreign policy making and to the understanding of ethnic political behavior.
