Achievements of the Military V Diplomats Term Paper

… ¶ … Achievements of the Military v Diplomats

The Achievements of the Military are More Decisive than the Achievements of the Diplomats (With Reference to the U.S. Foreign Policy between 1930 and 1956)

The question whether "the achievements of the military are more decisive than those of the diplomats" often boils down to a comparison between the pros and cons of war and diplomacy. There may be compelling arguments on either side but to my mind, "to jaw, jaw is better than to war, war" even if we discuss the topic in the context of U.S. foreign policy of a period (1930-1956) that saw the country win the Second World War.

The period between 1930 and 1956 was probably the most turbulent era in recent…. [read more]

Dwight D. Eisenhower Term Paper

… Eisenhower

Dwight D. Eisenhower transformed himself from "a good officer, but not a great one" into the Supreme Allied Commander during the Second World War, the first Supreme Commander of NATO, and a two-term President of the United States (Miller Center of Public Affairs). Unassisted by family connections or wealth, Eisenhower is the epitome of a self-made leader and an exemplary role model for personal strength and decisiveness. His leadership style and unique personal qualities emerged at a young age, when David Dwight (as he was born) chose to attend a military academy in spite of his parents' pacifist views. Similarly, Eisenhower's character may be judged simply by the fact that he sacrificed his own education in order to help pay for his brother's college…. [read more]

Comparative and Contrasting Study of Two International Entrepreneurs Henry Ford and Adolf Hitler Term Paper

… ¶ … International Entrepreneurs: Henry Ford and Adolf Hitler

Today, given their impact on the generations that followed, it is reasonable to suggest that two of the most influential individuals of the 20th century were Henry Ford and Adolf Hitler. While they were clearly at diametrically opposite ends of the morality pole, Ford and Hitler both nevertheless managed to epitomize their respective types of entrepreneurialism according to their unique time and place in history. In this regard, Baldwin (2001), reports that, "If a person were summoned from the waiting room into Hitler's private office, he would be somewhat taken aback to see hanging on the wall beside the massive desk a large portrait of Henry Ford -- Why here? And why now, ten years before…. [read more]

Public Diplomacy Term Paper

… ¶ … Congress of Vienna, amidst the height of the turbulent end to the Napoleonic era, Metternich was informed of the death of the Russian ambassador and exclaimed, "Ah, is that true? What can have been his motive?" (10:1067) Metternich, a diplomat by profession and persona, was not alone witnessing the gradual degeneration of public diplomacy; the overall esteem of the diplomat in modern society is one of nebulous antipathy. The diplomat is frequently accused of substandard intelligence, inadequate competency, and lagging moral qualities that were, almost certainly, hidden under the cloak of employed responsibility. Facing inevitable scrutiny and public distrust, the diplomat performs a necessary function in the greater political world.

The Wilsonian conception of foreign affairs embraced by the League of Nations and…. [read more]

European Security and Defense Policy Term Paper

… Possessing the most advanced technology was tantamount to being the lead nation. According to this line of thought, the United States of America controlled NATO, and played a leading role in European affairs by virtue of her technological preeminence. This technological preeminence was something that had to be preserved at all costs, for without it, America would be forced to give way. In the "alliance of equals," that was NATO during the Cold War; no nation could be permitted to hold a rank as "equal" as that of the United States. A classic example of this mindset is to be found in the following anecdote, from the pen of an eyewitness:

prime example of [this] behavior in my personal experience was U.S. reluctance to tell…. [read more]

Historical Background Relationship and Contribution of 12 Periods in Western Civilization Essay

… ¶ … society as if it were essentially autonomous: There were the Egyptians, and the Greeks, and then the Romans, and so forth. But while, of course, there are core practices, habits, and beliefs -- and historical moments -- that set off these and other societies from each other, there are many key connections as well. Societies borrow from each other all the time; indeed, one might argue that the level of "borrowing" from one culture to the next arises to the level of grand larceny.

When one thinks about it, though, there is every reason for societies to borrow from each other in the same way that one generation learns from its predecessor, and passes on what it has learned. Some of what different…. [read more]
