This book explores some disparate public conversations about missionaries that referenced the growing power of the United States from the end of World War II to the turn of the twenty-first century. These conversations echo the paradoxical logic of the United States' foreign policy rhetoric. The main goal of the book is to analyze public perceptions of and public conversations about missionaries in order to think through what messages different groups of Americans were generating and receiving about U.S. power, and about how Americans should live in the world.

Keywords:   missionaries, United States, World War II, foreign policy, public perceptions, public conversations
