Presidential Leadership Research Paper Instructions
Choose three U.S. presidents who have had a substantial impact on U.S. Foreign Policy toward the Middle East, and draft a quality 5–7-page research paper providing a concise but thorough analysis explaining the impact of each president’s policy.
As is mostly the case with USFP, this includes both positive and negative consequences if not simple tradeoffs, whether moral or strategic in nature. Pay attention to whether your president served before or after WWII, since the geopolitical environment of USFP after America became a hegemon in the Middle East region presented post-WWII presidents with significantly higher cost-benefit calculations than earlier presidents faced when Britain was the regional hegemon doing the heavy lifting. The paper must contain at least 3–5 scholarly sources original to this paper
***Caution—You may not write on the Barbary presidents, which are Presidents George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison
