America's Foreign Policy at Mid-Century
This event took place at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum in West Branch, Iowa.
Historians discuss the significant change in America’s foreign policy in the wake of World War II. Prior to this war, America was committed to a non-interventionism, reflecting America’s geographic remove from Europe. After the war, America became the leader of the free world, providing the first lines of defense against Soviet expansion. Historians Justus Doenecke, Thomas Fleming and Patrick Hearden will explore this crucial pivot point in American foreign policy.
