The politics of trade after the Cold War has transformed U.S foreign policy. Given the surge of interest in free trade agreements (FTAs) and the far- reaching political and economic repercussions of globalization, the post-Cold War period constitutes a critical juncture in the history of U.S. international economic policy and trade diplomacy. The U.S. began to seek FTAs as a way to maintain its strategic influence. Despite its hegemony, the U.S. has succeeded in negotiating and implementing relatively few FTAs. Why does the U.S. have relatively few FTAs compared to other economically powerful countries? Why has the U.S. taken longer to negotiate certain FTAs over others? The book will analyze the evolution of interest group coalitions and the persistent conflict surrounding FTAs and international trade since the end of the Cold War by examing the negotiations leading to the agreements signed with Jordan, Singapore, and Chile.
