ABSTRACT
This article presents an Indian citizen's analysis of the characteristics and attitudes of the people of the United States as well as the country's governmental processes. These are not fully understood in India and are responsible in a large measure for misinterpretations of the policies of governments and trends of public opinion in both sides. What the U.S. has achieved and what it is are due to the spirit of adventure of its immigrant population in conquering new frontiers; its political system which emphasizes individual rights and liberty; its economic system built up on enterprise and initiative of individuals; and technological innovations due to the inventiveness and skill of the people.
