The great American experiment is one of the most remarkable achievements in the history of civilization. How did America transform from a scrappy collection of British colonies into a global superpower?

In 24 riveting lectures, acclaimed history professor and American foreign policy expert Robert K. Brigham, PhD leads you on a trek across the globe to explore the dramatic events that shaped America and the world.

Through vivid accounts and insightful analysis, Prof. Brigham shows you that America's ascent into world leadership was neither preordained nor accidental. Rather, from its very beginnings, American foreign policy has been central to the country's national identity. While the Founding Fathers used foreign relations to secure the young republic's political experiment, subsequent leaders have consistently wielded American power to ensure the country's prosperity and security.

As Prof. Brigham ably demonstrates, America's role on the world stage has rarely been uncomplicated. Americans have always debated their place in foreign affairs - their wars, their commitments, their interests - and challenged others' perception of the nation's power. In fact, few issues have divided policy makers and the American public more than US foreign policy.
