This chapter explains that Margaret Mead's selection of the Anglo-American relationship as her own personal mission shows another important aspect of her wartime policy: to avoid relating anthropological analysis to “hostility” and manipulation, in order to use the wartime to create a program for peace. Things worked out well for Mead, as there was no demand for black propaganda in the Anglo-American relationship, a degree of freedom that led her to prepare the groundwork for the postwar cultural studies. Her work on the Anglo-American relationship embodies a statement about a culture acceptable both to itself and to another culture.
