All You Need is Love by Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman

Book Description

The Peace Corps concieved in the can-do spirit of the sixties, embodied America's long pursuit of moral leadership on a global scale. Traversing four decades and three continents, this story of the Peace Corps and the people and politics behind it looks at American idealism at work amid the hard political realities of the second half of the 20th century. The Peace Corps broached the age-old dilemma of US foreign policy: how to reconcile the imperatives and temptations of power politics with the ideals of freedom and self-determination for all nations. With stories from returned volunteers of exotic places and daunting circumstances, this is an account of the successes and failures of this governmental organization, and the geopolitics and personal convictions that underpin it. Finally the text addresses the question of whether the Peace Corps most helped the countries that received its volunteers, or whether its greater service was to America and its sense of national identity and mission.

American Umpire by Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman American Umpire, Hardback (March 2013)

Commentators call the United States an empire: occasionally a benign empire, sometimes an empire in denial, often a destructive empire. In American Umpire Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman asserts instead that America has performed the role of umpire since 1776, compelling adherence to rules that gradually earned broad approval, and violating them as well.
