Course Description

In this continuation of the discussion course/seminar Worldmaking (Part 1), we will read the last five chapters of David Milne's Worldmaking: The Art and Science of American Diplomacy. Discussion will focus on five significant shapers of US foreign policy: George F. Kennan, the architect of the strategy of Soviet containment; Paul Nitze, who universalized and militarized Kennan's strategy; Henry Kissinger, the diplomatic historian who served as national security advisor and secretary of state under two presidents; Paul Wolfowitz, a political scientist and neoconservative who helped George W. Bush plan the invasion of Iraq; and Barack Obama, whose foreign policy attempted to place reason and evidence above passion and ideology. Students are expected to read approximately twenty-five pages each week. Worldmaking (Part 1) is a prerequisite for this course.    Facilitated Discussion Active Participation
