2 Isolationism to Internationalism For more than 150 years, the American people were chiefly interested in domestic affairs, or what was happening at home. Foreign affairs, or the nation s relationships with other countries, were of little or no concern. Isolationism, the purposeful refusal to become generally involved in the affairs of the rest of the world, was American policy during this time. Since World War II, however, U.S. policy has featured a broadening of American involvement in global affairs.

3 Foreign Policy Defined A nation s foreign policy is made up of all the stands and actions that a nation takes in every aspect of its relationships with other countries. The President, the nation s chief diplomat and commander in chief of its armed forces, has traditionally carried the major responsibility for both the making and conduct of foreign policy.

4 The State Department The State Department is headed by the secretary of state, who ranks first among the members of the President s Cabinet. An ambassador is a personal representative appointed by the President to represent the nation in a foreign country in matters of diplomacy. The State Department issues passports, certificates issued to citizens who travel or live abroad. Diplomatic immunity is usually applied to ambassadors and means that they are not subject to the laws of state to which they are accredited.

5 The Defense Department This chart shows the chain of command of the American military services.

6 The Military Departments The Department of the Army The army is the largest and the oldest of the armed services. The army consists of standing troops, or the Regular Army, and its reserve units the Army National Guard and Army Reserve. The Department of the Navy The navy s major responsibilities are for sea warfare and defense. The U.S. Marine Corps, a combat-ready land force, are under the auspices of navy command. The Department of the Air Forces The air force is the youngest branch of the armed services. The air force s main responsibility is to serve as the nation s first line of defense.

14 American Foreign Policy Overview What were the themes in American foreign policy through World War I? How did the two World Wars affect America s traditional policy of isolationism? What are the principles of collective security and deterrence? How did the United States resist Soviet aggression during the cold war? How can we describe American foreign policy since the end of the cold war?

15 Foreign Policy From Independence Through World War I For 150 years, the United States had a policy of isolationism, as stated in George Washington s Farewell Address. The Monroe Doctrine (1823) warned Europe to stay out of the affairs of North and South America and established the United States as the hegemonic power of the Western Hemisphere. Throughout the nineteenth century, the United States expanded across the North American continent through both land purchases and military conquests. As the United States expanded commercially in the late nineteenth century, so did the reach of its foreign policy, as seen in the Good Neighbor policy in effect in Latin America during the early 1900s, and the Open Door Policy for China during the same time.

16 World War I and World War II World War I The United States entered World War I after continued disruptions of American commerce by German submarine warfare. After the defeat of Germany and the Central Powers, the nation retreated to a policy of isolationism. World War II The bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, drew the United States into World War II, joining the Allies (the Soviet Union, Britain, and China) fighting against the Axis Powers (Italy, Japan, and Germany). World War II led to a historic shift away from isolationism to an increased role in global affairs by the United States.

17 Two New Principles Collective Security Collective security, favored by the United States following World War II, involves a world community in which most nations would agree to act together against any nation that threatened the peace. Deterrence Deterrence is the policy of making America and its allies so militarily strong that their very strength will deter discourage, or even prevent any attack.

18 Resisting Soviet Aggression The cold war was a period of more than 40 years during which relations between the United States and the Soviet Union were tense, but did not result in direct military action between the two. The Truman Doctrine The Truman Doctrine established the policy of containment, an effort to contain the spread of communism throughout the nations of the world. The Berlin Blockade In 1948, the Soviet Union cut off all land transit to West Berlin. The United States responded with an airlift of goods to the city. The Cuban Missile Crisis In 1962, it was discovered that the Soviet Union was building missiles on the island of Cuba. A heated stand-off between the Soviet Union and America ensued. The Korean War The Korean War was fought under the auspices of the United Nations after the forces of communist North Korea invaded South Korea. The War in Vietnam The United States dedicated thousands of troops in an effort to resist aggression by communist forces in Vietnam.

19 From Détente Through the Present Following the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam, the Nixon administration embarked on a policy of détente. Détente is a French term meaning relaxation of tensions. Nixon would become the first U.S. President to visit mainland China in He also visited Moscow during his administration. The cold war came to an end with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in January 1991 brought the Persian Gulf War, with American forces spear-heading a multinational force to drive Iraqi forces out of Kuwait. The United States declared a war on terrorism in response to the attacks of September 11, 2001.

20 Section 3 Assessment 1. For much of the United States first 150 years, its foreign policy was one of (a) internationalism. (b) isolationism. (c) imperialism. (d) commercialism. 2. Collective security refers to (a) the goal of most of the nations of the world to act together to maintain the peace. (b) a free market ideal aimed at creating new markets for American goods. (c) a policy of tariffs and duties to protect American industries. (d) the goal of the United States to expand its borders. Want to connect to the Magruder s link for this chapter? Click Here!

22 Foreign Aid and Defense Alliances What are the two types of foreign aid? How can we describe United States foreign aid policy? What are the major security alliances to which the United States belongs? What is United States policy in the Middle East? What role does the United Nations play, and what problems does it face?

23 Foreign Aid Foreign aid economic and military aid to other countries has been a basic feature of American foreign policy for more than 50 years. Most aid has been sent to those nations regarded as the most critical to the realization of this country s foreign policy objectives. Most foreign aid money must be used to buy American goods and products.

24 Security Alliances NATO The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was formed to promote the collective defense of Western Europe. Today, NATO s purpose has changed. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, NATO s goals have broadened to include peacekeeping roles, such as in the Balkans, and establishing a continued relationship with Russia. Other Alliances The United States is also part of the Rio Pact with Canada and Latin America, the ANZUS pact with Australia and New Zealand, as well as other pacts in the Pacific region. The United States has also taken an active interest in the actions that unfold in the Middle East, although America is not part of any formal alliance in the region.

25 The United Nations The United Nations was formed following World War II to promote peace and security across the globe. The General Assembly acts as the town meeting of the world. Oversight and maintenance of international peace is delegated to the UN Security Council, of which the United States is a permanent member. Peacekeeping missions, international aid to children and women, and investigations and aid for world health services are all examples of current United Nations functions.

26 Section 4 Assessment 1. All of the following are examples of foreign aid EXCEPT (a) the United States sending supplies to a region struck by an earthquake. (b) the use of the military in overseas peacekeeping missions. (c) block grants to State governments to assist immigrants. (d) monetary aid to rebuild the economies of Europe. 2. The United Nations has all of the following functions EXCEPT (a) providing aid to children in emergency situations. (b) intervention in the activities of sovereign nations. (c) raising concerns over the global environment. (d) attempting to guarantee basic human rights worldwide. Want to connect to the Magruder s link for this chapter? Click Here!
