About this book

The global focus of corporations, government institutions, and NGOs have led to a defining question of the era: How do foreigners feel about working for Americans? Through surveys with over 700 Foreign Service nationals working within the US State Department, Benton examines perceptions of non-Americans working in overtly American environments.

Reviews

"America's unique position comes with a plethora of well-known challenges to the conduct of its foreign policy. What is less well known is how much it relies on non-Americans working for the State Department. Benton delivers a timely, meticulously researched, well-written and compact analysis of this population. Even those familiar with the intricate mechanics of US foreign policy will be intrigued by the practical lessons that meet the needs of practitioners, students, and researchers." - Johannes Pollak, Webster University & Institute for Advanced Studies, Vienna
