Anti-Americanism [4 volumes]: History, Causes, ThemesGebruikersrecensie - Book Verdict
Since 9/11, there has been a relative upsurge in published writing about anti-Americanism. The sources and causes, however, are more complicated than recent terrorist events can explain. These four volumes-each consisting of about a dozen substantial scholarly political and cultural arguments and opposing viewpoints-present an objective and balanced exploration of anti-Americanism. The essays are signed by their academic contributors, notably few of whom are from the United States; editor O'Connor (coeditor,The Rise of Anti-Americanism ) hails from Griffith University in Australia. Volume 1 addresses causes and sources of anti-Americanism. Subjects include capital punishment, religion, and the Iraq war. A chapter titled "What Is Anti-Americanism?" defines its subject as one side of a dichotomy, as a tendency, as a pathology, as a prejudice, and as an ideology. These somewhat abstract concepts fairly represent the intellectual level of the remaining essays. Volume 2 covers historical perspectives (e.g., "schizophrenic nationalism"; the anti-Vietnam War movement), with one essay arguing that anti-Americanism emerged long before America donned its superpower mantle. An issue Volume 3 takes on is the division between seeing anti-Americanism as a prejudice and as a conflict born of legitimate grievances. The final volume brings in such topics as the Bush doctrine, global poverty, and Islamic fundamentalism. One essay therein reflects on the extent to which American foreign policy is responsible for the rise in anti-Americanism. Each volume includes its own index and thorough footnotes.BOTTOM LINE The content is as appropriate for assigned class readings as it is for reference consultation. The set would make a valuable addition to any academic library that serves public policy, international relations, or history departments.-Kathleen Collins, John Jay Coll., CUNY
