Summary
"A revelatory reflection on America's role in the world from the perspective of a young woman who has been living in Istanbul for the past six years"--
Summary
In 2007 journalist Suzy Hansen moved to Istanbul, Turkey on a fellowship. Assuming that the rest of the world views the US as generous and benevolent, she was shocked to learn otherwise. In Notes on a Foreign Country, Hansen describes how an ignorance of history and international affairs inform many American self-perceptions. Recalling what she learned about US foreign policy during years spent in the eastern Mediterranean region, Hansen starkly illuminates the problems caused by Americans' unawareness of the rest of the world. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
