In this course we will be exploring and discussing U.S. foreign policy and the debate between isolationism and internationalism. We will be primarily reading Tomorrow, the World: The Birth of U.S. Global Supremacy by Prof. Stephen Wertheim, cofounder of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, about how the U.S. shifted from a stance of neutrality and isolationism to embracing liberal internationalism, building a huge military presence around the planet with undisputed hegemony over foreign affairs political, economic, and cultural. We will examine whether continued U.S. global military dominance is desirable or sustainable, and what role the U.S. may play on the world stage in the near and distant future. Two Thursdays: February 11 and 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Online Class.
