Abstract or Summary
  • U.S. foreign policy during the period between World War II and the Vietnam War has been described as part of a “nation-­‐building” or “liberal” grand strategy. This thesis contends that understanding U.S. efforts to influence the internal affairs of sovereign states through the spread of liberal values and institutions during this period as reflecting a grand strategy of containment shaped by a liberal interventionist strategic culture is a more useful framework of interpretation. Study of documentary evidence of U.S. State Department policy formulation on post-­‐World War II Italy (1945-­‐1948), post-­‐French Indochina War South Vietnam (1954-­‐1955), and Latin American neighbors Cuba and Venezuela (1958-­‐1959) provides critical insights to support this claim.
