Hating America: A History

Hating America: A History


Reviled as an imperialist energy, an exporter of harmful capitalism, an smug crusader opposed to Islam, and a rapacious over-consumer casually destroying the planet, apparently the USA of the US has infrequently been much less esteemed within the eyes of the realm. In such an atmosphere, you could simply fail to remember the truth that humans from different international locations have, in reality, been hating the United States for hundreds of years. Barry Rubin and Judith Colp Rubin right here draw on assets from a variety of international locations to trace the complete trajectory of anti-Americanism. With this strong paintings, the Rubins hint the anomaly that's the United States, a rustic that's either the main reviled and such a lot envied land in the world. in spite of everything, they display, anti-Americanism has usually been a visceral reaction to the very idea--as good as either the beliefs and policies--of the United States itself, its competitive innovation, its self-confidence, and the problem it poses to replacement ideologies.
