Selling the American Way documents how U.S. officials defined and defended the "American Way of Life" in a quest to promote democratic capitalism and discredit communism, but faced great difficulties in reconciling their symbolic America with the complex political, economic, and strategic realities of the Cold War.
Laura A. Belmonte is Associate Professor of History at Oklahoma State University.
"Well researched and clearly written, Selling the American Way is a welcome addition to a fast-growing body of literature on propaganda and the 'cultural Cold War.'"—Journal of American History
"Belmonte has produced an invaluable contribution that should be examined by everyone interested in understanding public diplomacy and in building an effective public diplomacy campaign."—American Historical Review
