Abstract

Despite their importance to the programs of American overseas agencies, little is known about the nationals who are drawn to employment with such organizations. A study of the national staff of an American university group in Vietnam, based on questionnaire data and personnel records, provides some information on this subject. In general, the higher the status of the national staff member within the group, the more likely he is to be critical of Americans, to feel that Americans do not behave properly in relations with him, to be somewhat dissatisfied with his job, and to feel resentment on the part of his fellow citizens for associating with Americans.
