Abstract

The fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War marked the beginning of a new era for United States foreign policy. The resulting confusion left the United States undecided on the direction in which its foreign policy should proceed. This thesis will examine different approaches to United States foreign policy through multiple steps beginning with the definition of the term "national interest". Two case studies will follow, examining recent United States actions involving humanitarian interventions and foreign policy toward Russia. The final chapter will consider the magnitude of United States power and its effects on the international community.
