THE UNITED STATES AND THE WORLD, 1914 TO THE PRESENT History 314 Prof. Logevall Spring 2008 Office: McGraw 343 Hollis E. Cornell Auditorium Contact: 4-4311; fl57 MW 11:15-12:05 Off.Hrs: W 1:30-3:30 Content : This course explores American foreign policy from the eve of World War I to the mid morning of April 30, 2008. Issues to be explored include the tension between isolationism and interventionism and between unilateralism and multilateralism; the emergence of the United States as a superpower; the Soviet-American confrontation; the rise of presidential power in foreign affairs; and the nature of American power in today’s world. Requirements : (1) Attendance at lectures, (2) active and informed participation in discussion sections, and (3) completion of three assignments. These are a prelim exam, a final exam, and a course paper (see p.3). Each will count for 25 percent of your final grade, with section participation counting for the other 25 percent. The deadline for deciding on your paper topic is March 5; the paper is due in class Monday, April 21. Also note: The final will not be cumulative; it will cover only material presented in lectures and readings after the prelim. Both exams will be essay tests. About a week before each exam, I will distribute a handout on which I list several possible exam questions; on the exam itself, one or more of those questions will appear. Reading
