This book really opened my eyes. I had no idea how far back America hating went. Europeans began hating America almost as soon as they heard of it. Cultural history so often comes from the Left, and they omit the petty snobbery that sounds so foolish today. Even though this is a scholarly book, it is very engaging. Personally, I wish everyone would read it.

This is a detailed and fascinating history of an attitude or sentiment. Namely an anti-American one. A look at how foriegners percieved the U.S. in unfavorable terms, especially Europeans. Very informative and recommended to anyone American or otherwise, in order to see how one's perceptions can be warped by a really prejudiced or biased attitude. The author goes to great lengths to show the hypocrisy and the illogical grounds on which some anti-American attitudes are based. When one reads this it becomes apparent that a lot of this contempt is mixed with unadmitted envy or a grudging acceptance that far from being a total failure the U.S. is actually a successful example to be followed, in at least some ways if not all.
