International education--United States; World politics; International relations--Study and teaching
The role of international education as an element in the foreign policy strategy of the United States is examined from the end of World War II until the late sixties. It is hypothesized that education was used as a convenient device during the period of the Cold War for conducting international relations when the battle for men's minds was being fought by the superpowers. Data presented indicates that with the intensification of the Cold War, a greater interest was expressed in international educational projects. As an instrument of the United States foreign policy, education was conceived as a convenient format for the achievement of both long range and short term national goals, through the development of a common framework for elite socialization and the articulation of a positive image of the United States around the world.
