Foreign policy decisions are often legitimised as serving the ‘national interest’. This concept – always a matter of interpretation – generally reflects a society’s political. Tony Smith's book explores the connection between evolving American multiculturalism and ethnic involvement in foreign policy discussion.

Investigating the changing tactics by which groups have sought to influence policy, he concludes that organized ethnic lobbies exert some influence through a variety of means.
