Prof. Dražen Pehar offers here an analysis of American foreign policy towards Bosnia-Herzegovina covering a longer period, from 1991 till today. The analysis presents four key narratives couched in terms that reflect American global policy as well as the image America cultivates about itself throughout the last century. Through this essay Pehar implicitly sides with the traditional approach of European diplomacy centered on the notions of compromise and of reasonable negotiating that assumes both rationality and moral equality of the opening positions.
