INTL 1443 - History of American Intervention
This course reviews modern history through the study of invasions, coups, and other interventions carried out by the United States. From the Marine assault on Tripoli in 1805 to the bombing of Tripoli in 2011, there have been scores of these episodes. They have shaped American history and the history of the wider world. We examine a variety of them, and try to answer three questions about each one. (1) Why did the United States decide to carry out a particular intervention? (2) How was the intervention executed? (3) What have been its long-term effects?
