The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy hosted a conference on March 30 and 31 that focused on the United States’ involvement in world affairs during the past 100 years, and the global issues it will face in the future. Panels covered the U.S. participation in World War I, the interwar period, the Cold War and its end, and the “unipolar moment” of American dominance. While the past century was a period of considerable continuity in U.S. grand strategy, the United States had to face evolving challenges to its core international goals, from the peril of German domination over Europe in two world wars, to the need to contain communism, to present day terrorism.
