Lets actually outline stuff because that is a bigger help than merely listing essay possibilities:

"Examine US foreign poicy leading up to and after world war I and world war II"

Leading to WWI:
-Germans violated US neutrality
-unrestricted submarine warfare
-Arabaic Pledge
-Zimmerman Telegram
-Sinking of Lusitania
-Ties to allied nations
Post WW1:
-Red Scare
-Palmer Raids
-Race Riots
-Strikes (prices went back up)

this is just basic points not details. Feel free to add on to this.
