Course Description: This course examines the relationship between the United States and the rest of the world in the 20th century. It explores America's rise to global power; the ideological foundations of U.S. foreign policy; and how, why, and with what effects the United States has exercised its power. The course covers key events, including the two world wars, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and CIA interventions in Latin America and the Middle East. Students investigate different facets of American power - political, military, economic, and cultural. They examine whether the United States should be considered an "empire" and the role of morality in foreign policy.
