Textbook for post-1945 U.S. foreign policy course?

I have taught a third-year postwar U.S. foreign policy course for a number of years. In the past I've used Walter LaFeber's America, Russia, and the Cold War as the background text. As this book is now out of print, I'm on the lookout for a replacement - but I haven't found anything suitable so far. I'd be grateful for any suggestions. 

Thanks,
