America is well-informed (CNN, Time, Newsweek) and, naturally, wealthy (American Express, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs). Of the top 100 international brands, 64 of them are American-owned.This book traces American history up to and including Obama, the values of Brand America and the growth of anti-Americanism. America is truly the greatest branding story of them all and this fully updated book tells it for the first time.
