The evolutionary Role of Key Advisors to US Foreign Policy

The evolutionary Role of Key Advisors to US Foreign Policy

Discuss the different types of advisors that have existed and how that position/ specifically the types of advisors who have filled that role have changed over time.

Discuss the topic specifically analyzing the subject throughout the past five administrations.

Provide an expose of the existing literature, use plenty of sources, and make your analysis as contemporary as possible. In addition the following key concepts should be emphasized: change and continuity, power and independence, threat or use of force, interdomestic policy, Top- dog vs. Underdog in diplomatic interaction.


Within the broad strokes with which our country’s history is painted the majority of endless US History textbooks and articles will forever associate if not allocate blame or glory to one individual, to the administration, a single man forever branded by the actions- good or bad- that took place during his time the oval. If not coerced or so tempted into taking a deeper glimpse into the formulation of strategies, which have been deployed by this nation’s military or economic powers throughout history, one may never learn about the figures consciously engaged in the process-taking place to insight these actions. To best illustrate how these pivotal roles change throughout time and administrative turnover, I will insight a discussion into the key advisors or institutions and the important foreign- policy interventions thereof. I will first discuss the offices, which have historically been “key advisors”, followed by examining the differences of the past five administrations. I will also look into the stark contrasts that exist between historic and modern roles. From McNamara, Powell, and Dempsey to the disarrayed barrage of advisors that have floated in and out of out current administration and the implications that may follow.
