Overview

Critical and balanced, this study by a group of scientists explores the history of the United States in order to discover not only the effects that certain events have had on the image Americans have of themselves but also on the image others have of them. It particularly looks at the radically changing image of the United States after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, discussing how the Western world was first shocked by the attack and then gradually felt antipathy and even undisguised hate as the U.S. became increasingly involved in Middle Eastern politics and declared war on Iraq.
