This article is a (friendly) criticism of recent writings by Holsti and Rosenau on the foreign policy views of American elites. It argues that their own data show a marked shift to the right by business, lawyers, and some other occupational groups during the late 1970s. It raises some questions about the adequacy of Holsti and Rosenau's questionnaire design and scaling procedures, and it rejects their suggestion that the experience of the Vietnam War explains later divisions among American elites.
