Analysis of 6 characters from the book The Ugly American. More info in description.

 
“The Americans I knew in the United States were wonderfully friendly, unassuming and interested in the world. No one who has ever visited America and come to know the country could fail to trust and respect her people.

For some reason, however, the Americans I meet in my country are not the same as the ones I knew in the United States. A mysterious change seems to come over Americans when they go to a foreign land. They isolate themselves socially. They live pretentiously. They’re loud and ostentatious. Perhaps they’re frightened and defensive; or maybe they’re not properly trained and make mistakes out of ignorance.”

William J. Lederer and Eugene Burdick’s The Ugly American uses its title to characterize a dual reality for the nature of American influence in Asia, and, by extension, the rest of the developing world during the era of the ‘Cold War’. In an essay of approximately six (6) double-spaced pages, identify and evaluate how six (6) characters from the novel illustrate this dual nature – its intent, its consequences and its implications – for the success of American foreign policy, and the manner that America and Americans have been perceived in the developing world since 1945. Note: In you presentation, be sure to provide demonstration of both sides of this duality in Ugly American, and, in all cases, be sure to provide adequate specific examples to effectively demonstrate and substantiate your analysis and perspective.
