Talking Past Each Other? How Views of U.S. Power Vary between U.S. and International Military Personnel

Talking Past Each Other? How Views of U.S. Power Vary between U.S. and International Military Personnel

Ratings: (0)|Views: 15 |Likes:
The gap between the U.S. military’s self-image and its image in the eyes of an international military audience is examined. When considering U.S. power, do response patterns indicate great difference between how U.S. military officers view themselves and how they are viewed by their international peers? If so, is there anything that the United States can do about it, or does a fundamental and pathological anti-Americanism predetermine outcomes?
