Abstract

This thesis will explore the influence of the idea of American exceptionalism upon American foreign policy towards Russia/the Soviet Union in the twentieth century, using a series of case studies. It will make the argument that this idea is far more prevalent in American foreign policy toward Russia than is often supposed, and that properly understanding American foreign policy toward Russia requires a complete understanding of how the United States views itself.
