American Diplomatic History: From George Washington to Barack Obama

June 14, 2016

Professor Michael Rockland’s first career was in diplomacy, serving with our embassies in Argentina and in Spain as a cultural attaché. One of the latest of his books is An American Diplomat in Franco Spain and he has long taught the course, “The United States as Seen From Abroad” at Rutgers. Thus, diplomacy has been both his vocation and his avocation for many years. In lecturing on American diplomacy he endeavors to trace the evolution of the United States from a nation dedicated to George Washington’s argument in favor of “no entangling alliances” to a nation that has, in some instances, gone in the other direction.

Funded project of the New Jersey Humanities Council.  The New Jersey Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
