Additional Course Details: 

This course will cover US foreign policy from Wilson to Trump, an era in which the United States had the opportunity to be the most influential nation but did not always exercise that power.  We will consider the changing definition of power as well as the shifting motivations of the United States to engage with problems outside of North America.  Readings will include primary sources, monographs, and novels.
