Us Foreign Relat To 1900
The arrival of the United States as the most powerful nation-state on the North American continent by 1900 was the product of much international interaction. This course explores the foreign relations of the Untied States by viewing this emergence in a broader international and historical frame. The course's major topics explore the migratory, political, diplomatic and intellectual currents linking the United States to Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia. Particular focus is given to the influence of the international system--ranging from European conflict and revolution to the slave trade--on the evolution of the diplomacy as well as the domestic politics, commerce, and society of the United States.
