Abstract : Since the publication of the 11th edition of this casebook, the George W. Bush administration has given way to the presidency of Barack Obama. This required us to update many of the cases and to introduce the theme of continuity and change in U.S. foreign policy. There are several cases that continue to resonate with students at the Naval War College and that have consistently appeared in previous iterations of this book, including We Have Some Planes (the 9/11 case), The 1973 Arab-Israeli War, and the Kosovo case. However, the 12th edition of the casebook has a number of new additions. We have introduced two new cases dealing with defense procurement issues (on the MRAP and the search for a replacement tanker for the Air Force); one on the tug-of-war between Congress and the executive branch (by focusing on Iran sanctions policy); and the Ayatollah and the Ambassador case, on the influence of religion in post-Saddam Iraqi politics. Also, new cases have been prepared on U.S. policy toward Darfur, Guantanamo Bay, and Iran, and case studies on Russia, Cuba, Colombia, and landmine policy have been significantly revised.
