"How did American education shape U.S. foreign relations? And how did educators around the world influence American schooling and diplomacy? These are enormous questions, and the answers vary across space and time. So do the remarkable essays in this collection, which draw together the best recent scholarship about international education and U.S. foreign affairs. There is plenty left to know, of course, and I hope this fine book inspires other historians to find it." - Jonathan Zimmerman, professor of Education and History, New York University
"Teaching America to the World and the World to America offers a treasure trove of fascinating research. It shows that Americans and other peoples learned about one another in ways that surprised them both and that soft power is as unpredictable, challenging, and determinative as hard power, and just as real. Wonderful reading." - Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman, author of All You Need is Love: The Peace Corps and the Spirit of the 1960s
