Interpreting U.S. Foreign Policy Since the 1960s

We often talk glibly about "the lessons of Vietnam" or "the Vietnam syndrome" but what does that tell us about America's foreign relations since the 1960s? What did we learn from the Cold War? And is Islamic terrorism something completely new and different or have we reverted to a Cold War mentality to face down the ideological foe? These and other questions will be examined in a lecture entitled "Interpreting the History of U.S. Foreign Relations Since the 1960s" tonight at the Marjorie Barrack Auditorium at UNLV.
