This course will be an examination of the application of the military element of national power to the pursuit of national goals. The purpose of this course is to make School of Foreign Service graduates conversant with the capabilities and limitations of military power in the development and successful implementation of an integrated foreign policy. We will begin with general and theoretical material to form a framework for further discussions. We will progress through a technical section where we will examine the capabilities and limitations of military power in its various forms. Finally, we will review case studies to give our work context. Discussion, vice lecture or formal presentation, will be normal mode of the class. Our emphases will be on research, critical reading, analytical thinking, and their communication through seminar discussion, oral presentation, and discursive writing.
