LEAD 120 Spring 2015 America and the World

Cross Listed as INST101, PSCI120
The object of this course is to introduce students to international relations and American foreign policy through a study of the problems and dynamics of America's contemporary situation. Several general themes emerge over the semester. What are the major forces driving American foreign policy; that is, what causes change and continuity in the American approach? How have American statesmen thought about these issues? What are the dynamics of particular foreign policy problems? And, most importantly, what policies should the United States pursue? To get a handle on these issues we will study American foreign policy traditions, American strategy during and after the Cold War, terrorism, the contemporary Middle East, and other topics of current interest.
