(p.62) 4 The Aid War and Reassessment
The evolving role of nation-building in US foreign policy
Manchester University Press

The chapter explores how political culture thwarted Eisenhower's desire to incorporate more development aid into security assistance, even in the face of a perceived economic offensive by Khrushchev's Soviet Union targeting decolonizing countries. The chapter examines the decision making process through which the administration managed to persuade Congress as to the need for development assistance to decolonizing areas. Also examined are inputs to this process from C. Douglas Dillon, William Draper, and modernization theorists in academia.

Keywords:   Eisenhower, Khrushchev, Dillon, Draper Report, modernization theory
