    An excellent overview of US foreign policy ideas and history, spanning most of the 20th century and ordered chronologically. I was especially struck with how current many of the arguments seemed (or perhaps another way to state that would be that I was surprised at how outdated current thinking is). I especially enjoyed the mid-century section, containing WEB Dubois' essay on the economic transition of Africa and Margaret Mead's take on economic development indices.
