Confronting America : the Cold War between the United States and the communists in France and Italy by Alessandro Brogi( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the Cold War, the United States encountered unexpected challenges from Italy and France, two countries with the strongest, and determinedly most anti-American, Communist Parties in Western Europe. Based primarily on new evidence from communist archives in France and Italy, as well as research archives in the United States, Alessandro Brogi's original study reveals how the United States was forced by political opposition within these two core Western countries to reassess its own anticommunist strategies, its image, and the general meaning of American liberal capitalist culture and ideology. Brogi shows that the resistance to Americanization was a critical test for the French and Italian communists' own legitimacy and existence. Their anti-Americanism was mostly dogmatic and driven by the Soviet Union, but it was also, at crucial times, subtle and ambivalent, nurturing fascination with the American culture of dissent. The staunchly anticommunist United States, Brogi argues, found a successful balance to fighting the communist threat in France and Italy by employing diplomacy and fostering instances of mild dissent in both countries. Ultimately, both the French and Italian communists failed to adapt to the forces of modernization that stemmed both from indigenous factors and from American influence. Confronting America illuminates the political, diplomatic, economic, and cultural conflicts behind the U.S.-communist confrontation. Publisher's note
The Legacy of J. William Fulbright : policy, power, and ideology( )

5 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. William Fulbright (1905-1995) represented Arkansas as a US Senator for almost 30 years and was the longest serving chairman in the history of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. A Southern Democrat and a liberal internationalist who supported the creation of the United Nations, he battled against the Republican forces of Joseph McCarthy and John Foster Dulles. When President Johnson intensified American involvement in Vietnam, Fulbright became outspoken in his staunch opposition. Throughout his career, Fulbright also advocated for an international order based on interpersonal connection and mutual understanding, and he saw programs of educational and cultural exchange as necessary for the creation of such a world. Thus, his efforts to establish an international exchange program eventually resulted in the creation of a fellowship program that bears his name, the Fulbright Program. In The Legacy of J. William Fulbright: Policy, Power, and Ideology, editors Alessandro Brogi, Giles Scott-Smith, and David J. Snyder bring together fourteen essays to offer a critical analysis of both Fulbright the politician and Fulbright the program. By framing their investigation within a wider reevaluation of liberal internationalism, the manuscript addresses ongoing debates on ideology, consistency, and imperialism within US foreign policy throughout the twentieth century. The volume's multi-dimensional focus covers Fulbright's difficulties in maintaining a national and a global voice on foreign relations while wrestling with the political controversies of the US South during the civil rights movement, his involvement in domestic political controversies, and the relevance of his exchange program historically and in present day"
