Growing U.S. involvement in global affairs in the twentieth century presented a need to integrate and coordinate American foreign policy with the nation's military capabilities. Indeed, after World War II, the growing importance of military power with respect to foreign policy led to the adoption of the term national security policy, which encompasses military, diplomatic, and economic elements of national policy. The emergence of the modern national security system was firmly rooted in the experiences of World War II. The passage of the National Security Act in 1947 created an important divide due to its major impact on the organization and coordination of U.S. national security policy. This guide is a compendium of material related to the development of U.S. foreign and military policy (pre-1947) and national security policy (post-1947). It is formatted as a chronology of meetings and major international events.
