"A first-class systematic attempt to analyze U.S. foreign policy in the aftermath of the Cold War. . . . This book explores the complicated business that U.S. diplomats face in reversing adversarial relations and moving toward something friendlier and more positively productive."--Dario Moreno, Florida International University

This book was commissioned as part of the project on U.S. relations with Cuba at the Atlantic Council of the United States. It examines recent cases in which the United States attempted to rebuild a normal relationship with a one-time adversary. With a description of day-by-day and step-by-step plans and obstacles, it compares the process of normalization with Russia, China, Vietnam, and Nicaragua, and explores failed attempts with Iraq and Cuba. The cases provide insight into the complex domestic and foreign policy agendas surrounding normalization and shed light on the important post-cold-war phenomenon of making up with former enemies in ways that facilitate better ties over the long term.
