Hoover L-M hosting foreign-policy talk, C-SPAN

West Branch Times (Iowa)
July 27, 2012

On Saturday, July 28th at 1 p.m., the Hoover Library-Museum will present a free symposium titled Pivot Point, and C-SPAN announced it will cover the event. This will feature three historians speaking on the significant change in America’s foreign policy in the wake of World War II. Prior to this war, America was committed to a non-interventionism, reflecting America’s geographic remove from Europe. After the war, America became the leader of the free world, providing the first lines of defense against Soviet expansion. Historians Justus Doenecke, Thomas Fleming and Patrick Hearden will explore this crucial pivot point in American foreign policy. … Justus Doenecke, Professor Emeritus of History at the New College of Florida, has devoted much of his career to studying American foreign policy at mid-century.
