    Robert Beisner's book begins with a historiographical sketch which covers the themes and issues of the period 1865 1900 Whereas a general consensus seems to reign amongst historians of the antebellum period Beisner's consideration demonstrates that the debate over the interpretation of diplomacy and foreign policy heats up once we enter the period which follows the Civil War Beisner hints that this might well be explained by reference to the distorting influence of the Cold War historiographical context an explanation which Kinley Brauer updates in his recent essay in Diplomatic History entitled The Great American Desert Revisited After presenting the dichotomies which have divided the guild since WWII Beisner proposes to go beyond them to restore the synthesis with recourse to the scientific concept of paradigmThe period under discussion for this week falls within the time span in which Beisner claims the foreign policy of the United States is directed by The Old Paradigm He characterizes this period asyears when the outlook of American policymakers was generally isolationist noninterventionist and unilateralist; their customary manner of conducting foreign affairs was passive and reactive their guidance of diplomats abroad many of whom were rank amateurs was minimal and vague and their country's army and navy were ill prepared for serious warfare p 39In brief foreign policy was not weighty enough a matter during Reconstruction or the Gilded Age to merit a systematic approach It would take the traumas of the 1890s a period beyond the scope of this week's study to bring about the formalization and professionalization of foreign policy under the aegis of The New Paradigm
