ABSTRACT
This article examines the historical evolution and development of U.S. foreign policy. There are three distinct periods in evolution and development of U.S. foreign policy. The first one was the so-called isolationism period that started immediately after the country's independence from Great Britain. The second was during the period of two world wars. The third was the commencement of antagonism between the U.S. and the Soviet Union immediate after World War II. Today the country is focused on global commitment to support democratic states against domination and infiltration by Soviet Union-inspired and directed communist movement. The current state of affairs needs reexamination so as to discover new ways at looking into the national interest and international peace.
