"Few would deny that anti-Americanism is on the rise around the world, but just what it is and why does it matter? This perceptive volume pulls together essays by some of the world's top scholars to dissect a growing, dangerous, and often misunderstood understood phenomenon. Anyone who cares about the American image in the world today would benefit from reading it."
Philip H. Gordon, author of Allies at War: America, Europe and the Crisis over Iraq
"With Us or Against Us is an illuminating perspective on the many different strands of contemporary anti-Americanism. Covering reactions from all the major regions of the worldWestern and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asiawe learn that anti-Americanism reflects the identities and interests of the anti-Americanists as much as the actions of Americans and their leaders. An important book on a critical subject."
Bruce Cain, Robson Professor of Political Science, Director of the Institute of Governmental Studies, UC Berkeley
"Anti-Americanism is both visceral and complex, singular in its target yet diverse in its implications. This collection of essays by a distinguished group of international scholars brings both immediacy and deep reflection to this most important phenomenon."
