This chapter discusses the attempts that Bill Clinton, George W. Bush's successor, conducted to meet the challenge of shaping foreign policy in a post-Cold War world. Clinton's strategy, which was cast in ideals that appealed to Americans on an emotional and intuitive level, appeared to be promising in terms of sustaining public support for foreign policy. Clinton called his strategy “enlargement”, and it also seemed to be calculated to meet the exigencies of post-Cold War affairs.

Keywords:   Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, foreign policy, post-Cold War, strategy, public support, enlargement, post-Cold War affairs
