No description available, The nation was powerful and prosperous the president was vigorous and young and a confident generation was gathering its forces to test the New Frontier The cold war was well under way but if you could just as the song went put a little love in your heart then the world would be a better place The Peace Corps conceived in the can do spirit of the sixties embodied America s long pursuit of moral leadership on a global scale Traversing four decades and three continents this story of the Peace Corps and the people and politics behind it is a fascinating look at American idealism at work amid the hard political realities of the second half of the twentieth century More than any other entity the Peace Corps broached an age old dilemma of U S foreign policy how to reconcile the imperatives and temptations of power politics with the ideals of freedom and self determination for all nations i All You Need Is Love i follows the struggle to balance the tensions between these values from the Corps first heady days under Sargent Shriver and beyond to the questioning years of the Vietnam War when the Peace Corps was accused of being window dressing for imperialism It follows the Peace Corps through the years when volunteering dropped off and finally into its renewed popularity amid the widespread conviction that the Peace Corps preserves the nation s finest traditions With vivid stories from returned volunteers of exotic places and daunting circumstances this is an engrossing account of the successes and failures of this unique governmental organization and of the geopolitics and personal convictions that underpin it In the end the question that is most compelling is whether the Peace Corps most helped the countries that received its volunteers or whether its greater service was to America and its sense of national identity and mission, In the U S Army Signal Corps sent women to France to help win World War I They were masters of the latest communications technology the telephone switchboard Top U S commander General John Pershing requested female wire experts when he discovered that inexperienced doughboys were unable to keep him connected with Allies and troops under fire Men called them the Hello Girls They were America s first women soldiers br br While militant suffragettes picketed the White House and President Woodrow Wilson struggled to persuade a segregationist Congress to give the vote to all women an extraordinary cohort swore the Army oath Elizabeth Cobbs reveals the day to day challenges these patriotic young women faced in a war zone where male soldiers resented wooed mocked saluted and ultimately celebrated them The first received a baptism by fire as Germans bombarded Paris with their new heavy artillery Big Bertha A few followed Black Jack Pershing to battlefields where they served through shelling and bombardment Their brave impassioned year old leader won the Distinguished Service Medal br br The Army discharged the last Hello Girls in the year Congress ratified the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the ballot When the uniformed operators sailed home the Army unexpectedly dismissed them without veterans benefits They began a new sixty year battle that a handful of undaunted survivors carried to triumph in With the help of the National Organization for Women Senator Barry Goldwater and a crusading young Seattle attorney they defeated the U S Army to win their Victory Medals at last, Commentators frequently call the United States an empire occasionally a benign empire sometimes an empire in denial and often a destructive empire Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman asserts instead that because of its unusual federal structure America has performed the role of umpire since compelling adherence to rules that gradually earned collective approval br br This provocative reinterpretation traces America s role in the world from the days of George Washington Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D Roosevelt to the present Cobbs Hoffman argues that the United States has been the pivot of a transformation that began outside its borders and before its founding in which nation states replaced the empires that had dominated history The Western values that America is often accused of imposing were in fact the result of this global shift i American Umpire i explores the rise of three values access to opportunity arbitration of disputes and transparency in government and business and finds that the United States is distinctive not in its embrace of these practices but in its willingness to persuade and even coerce others to comply But America s leadership is problematic as well as potent The nation has both upheld and violated the rules Taking sides in explosive disputes imposes significant financial and psychic costs By definition umpires cannot win br br i American Umpire i offers a powerful new framework for reassessing the country s role over the past years Amid urgent questions about future choices this book asks who if not the United States might enforce these new rules of world order
