    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Although the term national interest has long been used in reference to the foreign policy goals of nations, there has been no generally agreed upon definition of the concept; as a result, Donald E. Nuechterlein contends, there has been a tendency for foreign policy to be determined by institutional prejudice and past policy rather than by a systematic... more...

    Helicopter pilots in Vietnam kidded one another about being nothing but glorified bus drivers.

Johnson flew the UH-1 “Iroquois” — better known as the “Huey” — in... more...
