Abstract

The purpose of this article is to analyze the Obama doctrine in the context of the US foreign policy evolution since the Second World War. The American researchers suggest a vision of that evolution as a certain cycle of the US course in the world politics. Obama’s foreign policy was determined by two main factors: the internal economic situation and changes in the international environment. The combination of these factors led to the existence of multi-vector tendencies in the system of foreign policy decisions. In light of this, the development of a new concept of American world leadership was initiated at the political and academic levels in the United States. The article analyzes the results of the implementation of this concept.
