The world has become increasingly armed due to the forces of terrorism, threat of ISIS, and cyber attacks. The strategic issues of foreign policy have emerged as a predominant subject at the nation-state level. The end of Cold War did reduce the threat of annihilation, yet a few countries are still eager to start an arms race, making the world more dangerous. Major conflicts could break out with devastating consequences. This is the first book in one volume on foreign policy and diplomacy focusing on a composite set of major powers, contributed by eminent practitioners and scholars to serve as an authentic source for study and reflection, ideally suited for foreign policy analysts, international business, and graduate students. Individual chapters serve as a roadmap to understanding forces which are moving forward to promote and safeguard their national interest within the international community. Using a flexible framework, leading specialists discuss the strategies employed by major powers, as well as emerging powers to accommodate the rapid global changes.

Each chapter describes a discrete context of foreign policy development and adaption, and collectively they summarise a benchmark of global polices in this changing era.
