This work is the first in the national historiography experience publishing a textbook that describes the evolution of U.S. foreign policy since their inception in the late XVIII century and to this day, distinguishes its main stages and events. Authors trace the formation and improvement of the mechanism of the U.S. foreign policy and the development of the conceptual framework in which it operated the modernization program-target plants in foreign policy.
