Us Evolution of Foreign Policy

...History Unfolding A historian's comments on current events, foreign and domestic. Sunday, November 13, 2005 The Evolution of American Foreign Policy One of the great dramas of the twentieth century involved the redefinition of the United States’ role in the world. The US had isolated itself from European quarrels from 1815 to 1915—although the Northern victory in the civil war had an enormous influence upon the advent of democracy in Britain in 1867, and probably in Germany and France as well. In 1898 the US joined the imperialist scramble after the war with Spain, acquiring the Philippines and proclaiming influence over Cuba and new, special rights in Latin America. But as late as 1915, when the sinking of the Lusitania first threatened to draw the US into war with Germany, the issue remained violently controversial. When President Wilson announced that he would hold the Germans to a “strict accountability” for any further such outrages, his Secretary of State, three-time Presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan, resigned. Wilson’s stance, he said, would inevitably draw America into the war, and the government should instead simply tell American citizens that henceforth they could travel to Europe at their own risk. Already, however, as Charles A. Beard pointed out during the 1930s, some American politicians—mostly Republicans—had laid out new principles that would give the United States a kind of dominion over the entire globe, based on our...

Hr Policy

...Human resources policies are a set of practices and procures used to manage interactions between the employer and employee. In general, human resource is primarily focused on employee management, which includes recruitment, hiring, managing, and termination. All companies have human resources policies, as they are typically required by law. In the United States, the Labor Standards Act provides a list of required procedures for all employers. These procedures cover all the major life events for an employee and are mandatory. (Jucious, 1963). There are four generic areas of human resources policies: recruitment, employment standards, discipline, and termination. The Labor Standards Act provides a basic framework, on which all human resource policies are built. The purpose of human resources policy is to clearly communicate the company’s internal procedures, requirements, and consequences. It is worth noting that almost half of all civil lawsuits are a result of a dispute surrounding human resources issues. In recruitment, there are four common human resources policies. When a position is vacant, the length of time applications will be accepted and who can apply is provided in policy. Prioritization of applicants and the granting of preferential status during the application process are common in both union and non-union environments. Non-discriminatory hiring practices based on race, religion, and gender is standard. Checking of references as part of a condition of employment...

E-mail: thuyhang032003@gmail.com Received: July 27, 2013 doi:10.5430/wjss.v1n1p20 Accepted: August 12, 2013 Online Published: August 13, 2013 URL: http://dx.doi.org/10.5430/wjss.v1n1p20 Abstract This article reviews major theoretical perspectives to US foreign policy as well as on how these theoretical perspectives explain foreign policy decision making and conducting of the US. First, the paper will discuss the process of making foreign policy to sustain US core values and interests which are determined by five major categories of sources (i) the external environment, (ii) the societal environment of the nation, (iii) the governmental setting, (iv) the roles of foreign policymakers, and (v) the individual personalities of foreign policy-making elites (Wittkopf et al 2008, p. 15). Then, the paper will examine the defensive and offensive realism, liberalism, marxism, neoclassical realism, constructivism which can be based on to understand US foreign policy behaviour. It will be concluded that no single theory has the capacity to describe, explain and predict US foreign policy behaviour. A mixture of such theoretical approaches seems to be necessary to obtain a comprehensive picture of US......
