Why Do People Hate America? By Merryl Wyn Davies and Ziauddin Sardar

The economic power of US corporations and of American popular culture affect the lives and cultures of millions around the world.The foreign policy of the US government,backed by its military strength has unprecented global influence.America also exports its value systems,defining what it means to be civilised,rational,developed and democratic-indeed,what it is to be human.Meanwhile,the US itself is impervious to outside influence and if most Americans think of the rest of the world at all,it is in terms of deeply ingrained cultural stereotypes. Many people do hate America,in the Middle East,the developing countries and Europe.This book tries to analyse why and contributes to a debate which should be addressed by people of all nations,cultures,religions and political persuasions.

    I've bought the book but can't start reading it until next Tuesday evening at the earliest - if I make it a decent way through, then I'll come along but I won't RSVP until I know for sure ;)
