After the 9-11 attack on the United States, the brief moment of global sympathy for America soon began giving way to blame. In France and other quarters of Europe, and elsewhere in the world, it was said that the Americans had brought this violence upon themselves. The United States was a cowboy nation disinclined to abide by the will of the United Nations and other multilateral institutions and bent on pursuing its objectives at any cost. It was the hyperpower whose corporations manipulated world markets and whose riches were acquired at the price of Third World impoverishment. No wonder it had been attacked!

Angered by these assaults on a nation he knows and admires, the distinguished French intellectual Jean-Francois Revel has come to America's defense in Anti-Americanism, a biting and erudite book that, paradoxically, given his country's especially vehement attack on the U.S., spent several weeks last year at the top of France's best seller list.

    " This really is a fun read. It is fascinating to see how the French elite and media see/portray American society, politics and foreign policy. "

    " Insightful. Not quite engaging enough for me to make it through (because of a lot of standard Conservative viewpoints I'm already familiar with), but still, overall, an interesting book. "

    " An interesting attempt at an unusual topic, I didn't agree with many of the author's theories but I found the read to be interesting nevertheless that helped introduce another perspective to this phenomenon. "
