Summary
Sanders, an international business lawyer who teaches communications studies at the U. of California, Los Angeles, explores the views of people around the world about America. He examines positive and negative images of the US and how and when they arose in the country's history, including those that occurred from direct observation and experience, pictures shown and stories told by others, and as the result of imagination and popular culture. He then looks at how people select predispositions such as conformity, xenophobia, nationalism, partisanship, resentment, hope, desire, and religious faith, and how they connect to issues of political philosophy and the expression of opinions related to aversions to America's liberal philosophy, its commitment to modernity and change, and its expression of a life that is fuller, freer, and wealthier, but out of reach, as well as what can be done to enhance its image.
