National & International Sources of American Foreign Economic Policy: The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Univ. of California, Santa Barabara Dept. of Political Science, UMI number 9542042. Enjoy all 589 pages. The dissertation examines competing explanations of foreign policy behavior, especially Putnam's two-level game approach in the auto and textile and apparel sector negotiations. There is also coverage of the broader context and history of NAFTA formation and passage that would be of greater interest to a less-specialized audience.
