Whether measured in nuclear warheads, GNP, or the “soft power” of
cultural influence, the United States is dominant around the world,
and has been for much of the twentieth century.  No education in
United States or world history would be complete without an
understanding of America’s global reach.  This seminar will examine
important issues concerning U.S. relations with the world:  the
ingredients of American power, the ideologies that have guided it,
the reactions and resistance it has inspired.  Students will learn
the literature of the field as well as the craft of writing a
research essay.
