Abstract:

From the American Revolution until 1945, the United States pursued a foreign policy devoid of prior commitments. As a result of World War II the United States reversed her historic policies and began to play a full-scale role in world affairs. The dimensions and meaning of this change are discussed in the article that follows, and an attempt is made to evaluate the significance of this mid-century revolution today after a quarter-centurys experience as a great power.
