    a thoughtful analysis...

    Although maybe a little low on concrete proof for some of its assumptions, this book contains a concise mixture of the concrete experience; through US interventions, the effect of globalisation, US economic policy, and an insular US media as well as the abstract; culture, values and belief systems, existential and societal concepts. Detailing expertly how these combined elements shape the relationship between the US and the world. While in some chapters it may seem to rely a little too heavily on conjecture (an inherrent problem of presenting arguements thru abstract concepts), it presensts an intersting understanding of the US attitudes towards the outside world. Lastly I feel it must be said that this book is balanced and does not shrink from highlighting the erronous assumptions and stereotyping that the world makes in return towards the USA, adding fuel to their own fire.

    A must read in light of current events.

    This book explains thoroughly, the question which lies within its title. "Why Do People Hate America?" presents a chance to understand why America is disliked, an attitude which has been recently growing in popularity. Even if the reader disagrees with the points made, it gives them a chance to see how America is viewed throughout much of the World. This is one of the most readable books on the subject. Points are clearly lamented through a process of presenting facts and forming conclusions, which the reader may or may not agree with. By examining everything from foreign policy, to hamburgers Ziauddin Sardar and Merryl Wyn Davies explore the reasons why people do hate America. For anyone who is interested in this subject this is a must read.

    SO...why do people hate America?

    A good read for someone who is from America and wants to see another point of view. Some of the details in this book are shocking but many of the arguments are weak because they are based more on opinion then fact. It's nothing new if you've read other books that critique America but its a great book to start with if you haven't.

    Almost makes a good argument

    The book brings up some very important and interesting views on why it seems the rest of the world hates America. However, as clever as the argument is it loses all credibility when the educated authors use television shows and other pop culture items to make a political point. Neither one of the authors are American and seem to think that Alias and The West Wing are representative of the collective American voice versus the actual voice of a few chosen Hollywood writers. All in all an interesting read that will make the average citizen question US foreign policy.
