INTNLREL 168: America as a World Power in the Modern Era (HISTORY 152K, INTNLREL 168W)

This class will examine the history of U.S. foreign policy, beginning the U.S. rise to world power at the dawn of the 20th century and concluding with an examination of the foreign policies of Presidents Bush and Obama. It will ask you to weigh the arguments scholars alongside firsthand (primary source) evidence ? to make your own assessments of motivations, goals, causation, and consequences. Above all, it will ask you to think historically about the last century of U.S. foreign policy, and to consider a broad range of factors: ideology, domestic politics, geopolitics, race, psychology, culture, and bureaucracy ? sometimes in complementary ways. Our task is to understand the critical choices made over the past century, both in their own right and for the broader lessons that a comparative historical perspective might provide.

INTNLREL 168A: American Interventions, 1898-Present (HISTORY 259E, HISTORY 359E)

This class seeks to examine the modern American experience with limited wars, beginning with distant and yet pertinent cases, and culminating in the war in Iraq. Although this class will examine war as a consequence of foreign policy, it will not focus primarily on presidential decision making. Rather, it will place wartime policy in a broader frame, considering it alongside popular and media perceptions of the war, the efforts of antiwar movements, civil-military relations, civil reconstruction efforts, and conditions on the battlefield. We will also examine, when possible, the postwar experience. Non-matriculating students are asked to consult the instructor before enrolling in the course.
