Overview

The empathy that flooded into America from around the globe after 9/11 has faded, and now America is arguably more unpopular that it has ever been. As global anti-Americanism threatens the modern world, Loch Johnson explains how the U.S. has drifted away from the principles that made it a highly regarded global leader at the end of the Second World War. Seven Sins of American Foreign Policy explores the negative worldwide attitudes toward the U.S., identifying how the antipathy runs much deeper than American political leaders' response to the 9/11 attacks.

Johnson's compelling insight isolates seven key foreign policy issues that are at the root of America's problematic global image, causing an alarming loss of allies across the globe:

Ignorance

Veneration of the president

Militarism

Unilateralism

Isolationism

Lack of empathy

Arrogance
