You'll also learn the origins and evolution of famous or significant pronouncements and policies, including Washington's Farewell Address, the idea of "Manifest Destiny", the Monroe Doctrine, the Open Door policy, isolationism, the Marshall Plan, and the "containment" of Communism. Presenting history's events as only a single part of a much broader whole, Professor Stoler adds the "how" and "why" to the "what" of American diplomatic history. The result is an entertaining series of lectures that will not only deepen your outlook on American history but will prove to you that not all history is made on the battlefield.

Very thorough and enlightening. Prof. Stoler has an artful approach to crafting lectures. By continually reinforcing chapter points with previous course material he underlines themes and notable ideologies that help the student understand the motives of various administrations and their posture to world affairs as well as help him form critical analysis of those admin. I'm studying for the FSOT and I consider these lectures essential to my studies.

A Great Perspective
This is an exceptional history course. First, don't take this course unless you already have a basic knowledge of American history. The professor assumes a base level of knowledge so that he can go straight into the story. He starts at the beginning of American history and goes all the way to George W. Bush. The twist is that the familiar history of America is retold through our nation's approach to international affairs and diplomatic relations. The professor does an excellent job staying organized and telling a comprehensive and enlightening story. My one knock is that the professor gets a little too opinionated as he reaches more modern history. However, he keeps this minimal enough not to distract from the overall quality of the course. I gained new perspectives on historic events, which significantly deepened my understanding of topics that I already knew. I am extremely glad that I took this course and highly recommend it.
