The United States and the Dilemmas of Modernization (Mario Del Pero)

The paper discusses how the theories of modernization and progress influenced and shaped the foreign policy approach and discourse of the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. While highlighting the inner limits, dilemmas and contradictions of such an approach, the article stresses the necessity to move beyond both the 1960s and the United States in order to understand the resilience of a certain discourse of modernization as well as its transnational origins.
