This seminar will examine the evolution of U.S. foreign policy during the second half of the twentieth century. Sampling the historical literature, we will explore how and why the United States maintained its position of dominance in the world. We will discuss and debate the morality and efficacy of our participation in the Cold War, the interventions in Korean and Vietnam, and our approach to the Middle East. Students will submit weekly one-page reports on the assigned readings, and write two analytical
essays.
