(p.73) Chapter 4 Enemies Abroad
Us Against Them
University of Chicago Press

This chapter, which investigates whether ethnocentrism predisposes Americans to lend their support to policies of confrontation and violence against outside enemies, analyzes ethnocentrism in the current and ongoing war on terrorism, the Cold War during the second half of the twentieth century, and Operation Desert Storm in 1991. The analysis provides evidence that ethnocentrism is a primary ingredient in the American public's support for forcefully confronting adversaries abroad.

Keywords:   ethnocentrism, outside enemies, war on terrorism, Cold War, Operation Desert Storm, adversaries abroad, American public
